From One Place to Another: Emma Goldman Clinic Stories (1996)

In January 1973, the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision swept across America, changing women’s lives as it politicized women’s bodies. At the same time in Iowa City, Iowa, a group of young feminists met to form a women’s health clinic dedicated to the tenets of self-help and access to abortion. This documentary utilizes a storytelling format to chronicle a historical movement and the women who seized it.
