Keesha and Joanie and JANE
Characters, Dialogue and Conflict Including Opinions, Memories and Strategic Planning Filled With Hope, Disappointment and Inspiration

by Judith Arcana

Keesha and Joanie and JANE is a story about young women responding to the ongoing elimination of abortion access in the USA. This fictional dialogue takes place in a near-future scenario in which the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, re-criminalizing abortion in the United States.

"Poses important questions for women in an intergenerational conversation ... This is good work!"
-- Sharon Barker, Director/Women's Resource Center, University of Maine

"Vital, funny, and stirring reading for anyone who cares about reproductive justice ... an urgent reminder that is it we who must act."
-- Rosemary Candelario, Educator/Organizer/Artist

"It's not often one sees whip-smart, funny women who invite such deep political dialogue in modern literature. Thank you, Judith!"
-- Erin Yanke, Media Artist and Program Director for KBOO Community Radio

"I remember answering the phone at the Chicago Women's Liberation Union office decades ago, and hearing the voice on the end of the line asking to speak to Jane -- a life line. Judith Arcana reminds us we may soon hear those same voices once again."
-- Christine Riddiough, Chicago Women's Liberation Union

"If you've ever wanted a conversation with a hero from history, this tough-talking, lively tour-de-force of politics and art is for you! The story-telling in Keesha and Joanie and JANE is mesmerizing."
-- Minnie Bruce Pratt, Lesbian, Writer, Anti-racist/Anti-imperialist Activist

"How grateful I am for Judith Arcana's brilliant and brave work."
-- Vicki Reitenauer, Instructor/Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Portland State University

"My mother, at age 75, frets about the threats to reproductive rights, especially since her four granddaughters have no clue about the 'bad old days.' I witnessed the transition to a time when women and girls in the US began having greater control over our bodies and our destinies, and share Mom's fears. Keesha and Joanie and JANE is an important reminder -- it's education for us all."
-- Jenice L. View, Teacher/Mother/Activist

Printed and co-published with Judith by Eberhardt Press in Portland, Oregon, Keesha and Joanie and JANE was designed as a parody of Broadway's well-known PLAYBILL booklets. This "JANEBILL" features work by Nicole Hollander, creator of the popular "Sylvia" comic strip.

Keesha and Joanie and JANE is written by Portland poet and JANE member Judith Arcana. The cover photo is Judith's mug shot from a 1972 raid by the Chicago police, eight months before the Roe v. Wade decision.
