Janice Warner was a college professor who taught a Women's Studies class in 2007. She studied the women's suffrage movement of the early 20th century, having written her thesis on noted suffragette Alice B. Harris, whom Janice even had the privilege of interviewing before her death.

Janice also tracked women who worked in traditionally male-dominated professions and mentioned them in lectures. These women included Lilly Rush, who was the only female homicide detective in Philadelphia (until the additions of Lennie Desalle, Josie Sutton and later Kat Miller).

Janice's students included Emma Stone, who approached Lilly, asking her to reopen the case of her great-great-aunt Frances Stone, who was killed in 1919. It was discovered that Frances had become involved with Alice's cause, but was suspected of working against them as a spy. When Lilly and Detective Nick Vera questioned Janice about it, she explained that this wasn't true. Janice played them a recording of one of her interviews with Alice, who revealed that Frances could not bring herself to betray the suffragettes.
