Abstract: This note calculates the cobordism of smooth, oriented manifolds with orientation-reversing involution, and also the $ 2$-torsion in the cobordism of such manifolds with orientation-preserving involution. In particular, it is shown that the forgetful homomorphism maps both groups monomorphically into the cobordism of unoriented manifolds with involution.
