Consent Ed is a peer-to-peer education program that engages Cornell women in conversations about sex, consent, and social responsibility. Trained facilitators teach skills and provide information to help others intervene in situations where an individual's well-being may be at risk due to consent being an issue. Consent Ed believes that all individuals deserve to have bodily autonomy, the right to say "no" to any kind of sexual activity, and that an enthusiastic and freely-given YES should be sought and given in every encounter.
Feminism: Food for Thought is a weekly series run by the Women's Resource Center that invites student organizations from around the Cornell campus to host an informal discussion about a particular issue, which is then examined through an intersectional lens. Discussions are open to the entire Cornell community and take place every Thursday at 6:00 pm in Flora Rose House common room (next to the dining room) during the academic year.
All are welcome to join the conversation! Meal swipes are available if you do not have a meal plan.
Visit the WRC's table on Ho Plaza for Love Your Body Day (mid-October every year) for free goodies and to celebrate bodies of all shapes and sizes. We also sponsor events such as film screenings, speakers and discussions to engage our community around body image, a culture of perfection, and critiques of the media's insistence that there is only one beauty ideal.
Every year the WRC directs a performance of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues. In 2017, the performance will be held on Saturday, February 25th at Bailey Hall. If you are interested in being involved with the production with publicity, tabling, vagina pop making or ushering, contact Laura Weiss.
Planned Parenthood Generation Action is an organization dedicated to securing reproductive justice for all. We're mobilizing to fight for education, healthcare, and access. Are you ready to take action? Get involved. Meetings are held on Mondays at 4:30 pm in Goldwin Smith Hall room 142 during the academic year. All are welcome!
