The mission of the Cornell Women's Resource Center (WRC) is to foster a more vibrant campus community by supporting the full and active participation of women-identified students in both their personal and educational pursuits at Cornell. The WRC champions endeavors that support women's education, empowerment, and advancement at Cornell and beyond.
The WRC strives to be a welcoming space for people of all genders and identities. We especially encourage women of color, Black feminists/womanists, queer and trans folks, and people with disabilities to drop by, attend our programming, apply for co-sponsorships, and speak with us about your concerns.
To stay apprised of upcoming events, please sign up for our newsletter!
The next confidential, supportive gathering for women-identified students who have experienced sexual violence will be Friday, November 10th. Please contact Cornell Health Counseling & Psychological Services at 607-255-5155 to discuss meeting with a facilitator, joining the gathering, or accessing individual support.
Are you passionate about feminism, creative, and looking to inspire others?
Apply to direct the 2018 production of The Vagina Monologues.
Prior directing experience is not required; rather, we are seeking a director(s) who cares about the issues and wants to develop a community amongst the actors (and non-actors) who will be in the performance. Familiarity and previous experience with The Vagina Monologues is a plus.
If interested in directing, please contact Laura Weiss, Director of the Women’s Resource Center, to schedule a time to talk further. Contact Laura by Monday, Oct 23rd for full consideration.

Recurring Events During the Academic Year
Stay tuned for future topic announcements!
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 are back as of September 14th! Join us weekly for a thought-provoking discussion!
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 6:05 pm. We will no longer hand out free tickets after 6:05 pm in order to avoid disruptions to the conversation. For the same reason, we ask that participants refrain from texting or using their phones during the discussion. 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 works to promote safe sex, educate others, and fight for reproductive justice. Join the conversation every Monday at 4:30 pm in Rockefeller Hall room 132.
