News & Announcements

Attend the 2016 production of The Vagina Monologues

Based on V-Day founder Eve Ensler's Obie award winning play, The Vagina Monologues explores and celebrates women. By turns passionate, amusing, devastating, emotional, and empowering, this collection of stories taken from interviews with women throughout the world has developed into an international phenomenon that gives voice to women's relationships with their vaginas.


(Doors open at 6:30PM)

All proceeds from the Cornell production go to the Advocacy Center of Tompkins County, which helps them to continue and expand their work to end sexual violence. In the past we have raised over $11,000 in a single performance for this amazing organization! We hope you’ll support the performance and its beneficiary this year!

Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door, and are available at or from cast members.  Group rates (of 10 or more) are available by contacting George Holets at

If you need accommodations to participate in this event, or have any questions, please contact:, as soon as possible.

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. Thursday, February 4th will be our first dinner of the spring semester. 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.

Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood, Mondays at 4:30 pm.
Vox works to promote safe sex, educate others, and defend reproductive choice. Join the conversation every Monday at 4:30 pm in Uris Hall G88.
