Before — and After — Roe v Wade"

The author will discuss the dramatic and ongoing struggle for women’s rights, focusing on women’s personal stories of back alley abortions before Roe v Wade, and the physicians and activists who risked everything to provide safe procedures.

After initial comments, Ms. Johns, an OWL SF member, will be ‘in conversation’ with OWL SF board member Maxine Anderson, followed by a Question & Answer session with the audience. Some important questions:

• Are we returning to a pre-70s time?

• What are women’s rights re: reproductive choice?

OWL is the only national membership organization to focus exclusively on critical issues facing women as they age. We work together to improve the status and quality of life for midlife and older women through national, state, and local networks. Read more at
