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.

Feminism: Food for Thought, Thursdays at 6:00 pm. Flora Rose House Common Room
Feminism: Food for Thought is a weekly dinner at Flora Rose House where we engage in informal, open conversation about a specific feminist issue.

Thursday, October 20, 6:00 pm. Topic: Disability and Dating Violence
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and research tells us that women with disabilities have a 40% greater risk of becoming victims of intimate partner violence than women who are currently able-bodied. Please join us for a discussion of how dating and domestic violence affect people with disabilities, and what can be done to help someone in an abusive relationship. 

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.
