Ask for Jane will be the first ever narrative feature film about the Jane Collective. The Janes were a group of women who formed an underground abortion network in the years prior to Roe v. Wade. Operating like a spy network, they helped over 11,000 women obtain safe and illegal abortions before their arrest in 1972.
The film is to be written and directed by the award-winning filmmaker Rachel Carey, and stars actor Cait Johnston who is also producing. An original member of the Jane Collective - Judith Arcana - is working with the team to ensure historical accuracy on this historical crime thriller.
