Seeking director(s) for The Vagina Monologues 2015 Production
It's the time of the year when the Women's Resource Center starts thinking about our next production of The Vagina Monologues! We are seeking 1-2 artistic directors for the 2015 performance which will take place March 7, 2015 in Bailey Hall.
The artistic director(s) will be responsible for the auditions, casting, rehearsals and overall creative vision for the production. A commitment to women's empowerment and the power of women's voices and stories is essential. Familiarity with the performance (whether you've seen it or been a cast member) is a bonus. All genders are welcome to be involved.
Auditions and casting take place at the end of the fall semester, and the time commitment is heaviest from when you return from winter break until the performance in March.
If you are interested, potentially curious, or have questions, please contact lbw26 (Laura Weiss, WRC Director) to talk further!

Get your Consent t-shirt!
The Sexual Violence Resistance Network in cooperation with the Women's Resource Center proudly announces the arrival of Consent shirts! The shirts were created by an alumnus last semester in order to raise awareness of the importance of consent in sexual relationships. Each shirt is printed on American Apparel, soft, union-made, sweatshop-free materials. They are $10 each and all proceeds go to the Advocacy Center of Ithaca. Please help support this initiative by purchasing a t-shirt for yourself or a friend!
The Sexual Violence Resistance Network is a safe space for allies and survivors of sexual assault to organize and direct actions against rape culture in our community. We are open to everyone and meet throughout the school year. For more information, please e-mail SVResistanceNetwork@gmail.com
To support the Advocacy Center and order your t-shirt, please contact Laura. Sizes large and extra large are available. (please note: the shirts run small)
