Documentary on history of underground abortion service screens tomorrow night


Wimminwise got the news about this documentary film screening last night at the Take Back the Night Rally. Some of our readers will, we think, be interested in the film, which chronicles the rise and fall of a feminist underground abortion service that operated in Chicago before the Roe v. Wade era.

The event is scheduled for Thursday, September 25, at the Rudyard Kipling, 422 W. Oak St., with doors opening at 7 p.m., film screening at 8 p.m. The suggested donation of $5-20 helps defray the costs incurred by the organizers.

About Ha_Qohelet

Ha_Qohelet is a transliteration of Hebrew definite article plus a feminine participle, all together meaning "the (feminine) one who assembles" or who calls together. Qohelet is the title of one of the books of the Hebrew Scripture, known in English as Ecclesiastes. The Women's Center at LPTS feels the epithet of Qohelet is a fitting one for what we do and are. The Women's Center is, indeed, a caller-together, a caller-to-wisdom, and an assembler -- of people, of ideas, of actions, and ultimately, we hope, of transformations in the world. In this context, Ha_Qohelet is the Director of the Women's Center, and Editor-in-Chief of Wimminwise.
