Who we are
Third Wave Resource Group (TWRG) serves as an on-campus resource for activism and support for third wave feminism for all members of, but not limited to, the Cornell community. As a resource group, we provide a safe atmosphere and community that will foster awareness of human rights and diversity issues. It is the goal of TWRG to serve as active agents in the promotion of third wave feminist ideals, bolster equality through volunteer work and education, and examine issues of race, gender, sexuality, and socioeconomic class through a feminist lens.
As TWRG also operates as a Cornell Living and Learning Community, the core eight members reside in Harlan House and organize the events, volunteer work, and programming for TWRG. Weekly meetings are held on Mondays, in Harlan House at 4:30pm, where community members can come and discuss feminist issues, help with events, and be a part of a community that promotes equality, activism, and education.
A central part of TWRG and Harlan House is the open and accessible nature of it as a community as well as its ability to provide a safe and comfortable zone for individuals who feel as if they are unsafe otherwise; community members who feel as if their safety has been compromised may come to the house to be taken to a safe room by one of the core TWRG members. TWRG also maintains a resource library at Harlan House, with books focusing on feminist issues and other topics that can be checked out by anyone on campus. Men as well as women live in the house, and Harlan currently serves as the only gender-neutral housing on campus, with men and women sharing rooms
