Sophie von Haselberg has completed another movie entitled, Ask For Jane, Set For 2018 Release

Mister D: Sophie von Haselberg has completed another movie entitled, Ask For Jane, which is based on real events. It’s the story of a group of college aged women who develop “an underground abortion network that helped over 10,000 women get illegal abortions in Chicago between 1968 and 1973. The movie gets high praise from feminist warrior, Gloria Steinem. Rachel Carey directed and wrote the script. It’s scheduled to be released in 2018

Plot Summary: In 1968 Chicago, young college student Susan takes a step outside her normal, sheltered life to help a desperate friend find a safe but illegal abortion. Susan and her more radical dormmate Janice form a friendship as they start providing the doctor’s number to other desperate women — until the doctor angrily refuses to help them. Instead of giving up, the young women decide to think bigger. Susan and her friends form the Jane Collective: a secret organization to help other women obtain safe abortions by connecting them with doctors who will provide the service safely and at low cost. Susan sacrifices her career plans, her boyfriend, and even her relationship with her mother in the name of helping women in need. When the women of Jane are eventually arrested, they face the ultimate test of their commitment to the cause and to each other. Read More

On Women Making More Than Their Husbands: “There may be a stand taken against women who are more successful than their men, but I don’t think that’s so important ultimately…

On Women Making More Than Their Husbands: “There may be a stand taken against women who are more successful than their men, but I don’t think that’s so important ultimately. I don’t feel it in my own life, because my husband is at home, and he’s OK with it. We have a pretty great life. There must be tensions because people talk about it, but I don’t feel it myself.” (The Hour – Jun 10, 2004)

I’ve had the privilege of covering the Milwaukee LGBT community as a reporter since the 1970s. Here are some highlights of local LGBT history.

Forty Years Ago

In November 1976, Sistermoon Feminist Bookstore & Art Gallery opened on E. Irving Place, later moving to E. Locust St. Until 1984, Sistermoon served as a primary meeting space and cultural center for Milwaukee’s feminist and lesbian communities.
