This is a reading of the short version of Jane: Abortion and the Underground, by Paula Kamen, based on original interviews with women who ran and used this legendary pre-Roe Chicago abortion service. Widely known as "the best kept secret in Chicago," Jane was run in private apartments across the city from 1969 to 1973 by "hippie housewives," students and activists -- and provided safe abortions to more than 10,000 women.
