Campaigns & Advocacy

Consent Is Sexy Mandatory

The Centre for Women & Trans People relaunched our Consent is Sexy campaign as Consent is Mandatory. It's not just a sexy thing to do, it is essential.

Consent means that all parties involved within a situation, be it sexual or not, must be in agreement with whatever is done to them, with them or around them, and should not be coerced or taken advantage of.

Consent is about adhering to the belief that everyone should have ownership over their own bodies, their personal spaces, and their right to make their own decisions.

Sexual assault is NOT sexy!

The Consent is Sexy campaign is also in conjunction with the "No means NO" campaign.

Contact the Centre for Women and Trans People for more information and to find out how you can become involved.

About United For Equity: Challenge Sexism

Challenging all forms of discrimination and oppression is an important part of the work of the student movement. Racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and all forms of oppression can affect how certain groups of people access post-secondary education, and perpetuate inequities in society based on gender, race, socio-economic status, (dis)ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, citizenship status and other factors.

The Canadian Federation of Students works through its constituency groups to promote equity and challenge all forms of discrimination. A series of equity buttons are available and templates can be downloaded for students' unions to use on their campuses.
