- Commemorating the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade -

Abortions were illegal in the U.S. before 1973, dooming women without economic means to the back alley and to life-threatening complications. This powerful documentary weaves together two stories: the underground networks that helped women find safe abortions outside the law and the intense efforts of feminists and their allies to decriminalize abortion that culminated in the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Radical Women, founded in 1967, was and continues to be on the frontlines of the movement for women’s reproductive rights. Bring your ideas to the open discussion about what you think is needed to beat back attacks at the state, and federal level as well as in the streets. (A film by Dorothy Fadiman, Daniel Meyers and Beth Seltzer)
