The year is 1968 and Joy, a housewife who lives in Chicago, is delighted to find out that she is pregnant. However, when she discovers that her unborn baby poses a threat to her health, she is met with an all-male medical establishment that is unwilling to allow Joy to have an abortion in order to save her life. Left with no other choice, Joy meets with a group of like-minded women, visionaries and activists, who are dedicating their lives to the progress of women’s rights. Moved by their altruism, Joy makes the decision to join their cause, putting everything she holds dear, including her marriage, on the line. Set during a time when the United States was on the brink of great political upheaval, Call Jane is a smart, surprisingly funny and timely reminder of how progress is made.
