How to Watch The Janes Online From Anywhere

By Lore Apostol / June 8, 2022

This new documentary movie tells the story of the seven women who built an underground service for women seeking safe, affordable, illegal abortions and called themselves Jane. We have all the information you may need regarding this title, including the release date and the platform that hosts it since you will be able to easily watch it online. This being said, let's see when, where, and how to watch The Janes online from anywhere in the world.

Directed by Oscar-nominee Tia Lessin (HBO’s Trouble the Water) and Emmy-nominee Emma Pildes (HBO’s Jane Fonda in Five Acts), The Janes offers first-hand accounts from the women at the center of the group and also women using their services, many speaking on the record for the first time.

The Janes tells the story of a group of unlikely outlaws. Defying the state legislature that outlawed abortion, the Catholic Church that condemned it, and the Chicago Mob that was profiting from it, the members of Jane risked their personal and professional lives to help women in need. In the pre-Roe v. Wade era - a time when abortion was a crime in most states and even circulating information about abortion was a felony in Illinois - the Janes provided low-cost and free abortions to an estimated 11,000 women.

Roe v Wade was a pivotal piece of legislation passed by the United States Supreme Court that legalized abortion across all 50 states. A recent leaked drafted document from the Supreme Court looks to be a decision written by Justice Samuel Alito to overturn Roe, with the support of five judges, which make up a majority on the court - meaning 22 states will restrict abortion and another four are likely to change their laws to ban or restrict abortion as well, undoing the work of so many from the movements who fought for abortion rights in the first place, and ironically, creates a renewed need for groups like Jane.

The Janes movie is 101-minute long, and it's set to premiere on HBO on Wednesday, June 8, 2022, at 9 pm ET. You will also be able to stream it online on the HBO Max service, where it will premiere simultaneously.
