Kaplan, Laura


"A firsthand account of an underdocumented moment in the history of abortion and women's liberation. Four years before the Roe v. Wade decision...a group of Chicago women set up 'Jane', an underground abortion referral service. Here Kaplan, a community organizer who was a founding member of Jane, describes the organization's effectiveness...Contemporary activists will be fascinated by Kaplan's description of Jane's day-to-day logistics and by her account of the power dynamics of a group that professed to be egalitarian but actually had a hierarchy based on who controlled information. At times Kaplan's storytelling falters, though...[but] her powerful story will be invaluable to organizers, feminist historians, and anyone concerned about contemporary threats to personal liberty."Kaplan, Laura is the author of 'Story of Jane The Legendary Underground Feminist Abortion Service', published 1997 under ISBN 9780226424217 and ISBN 0226424219.
