Recurring Events During the Academic Year

Feminism: Food for Thought, Thursdays at 6:00 pm.
Feminism: Food for Thought is a weekly dinner at Flora Rose House where we engage in informal, open conversation about a specific feminist issue. We will be kicking off our 8th year of conversation on September 1st.  Join us for a lively and engaging discussion!

As always, like the Cornell Women's Resource Center on Facebook to stay up-to-date on all of our future events and programs!

We'd also like to alert you to some new guidelines we've established to best facilitate conversation with the large size of our dinners. If you'd like to obtain a free dining pass, please arrive before 6:15 pm. We will no longer hand out free tickets after 6:15 pm in order to avoid disruptions to the conversation. We'd also like to encourage participants with their own meal plan (particularly the West Campus unlimited meal plan) to swipe their cards rather than grab a ticket. The cost of each individual dinner comes out of the WRC's budget, so if you have a meal plan you can use, the savings will contribute towards the future of Feminism: Food for Thought.

If you have any questions about the new guidelines or about Feminism: Food for Thought in general, please feel free to reach out.

Generation Action (formerly Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood), Mondays at 4:30 pm.
Generation Action (Vox) works to promote safe sex, educate others, and fight for reproductive justice. Join the conversation every Monday at 4:30 pm in the Willard Straight Hall Loft I (room 604).
