Sugar Free Feminism is a series of small programs designed to raise awareness, create conversation and dialogue, and develop an inclusive campus community dedicated to working on gender justice issues. The program series identifies needs of all students across campus and attempts to discuss the issues in a very real, "non-sugar coated" way. Past topics have included: Heartwork Workshop with Tanaya Winder, The Trans List Documentary Screening, Immigration 101 for Allies, exclusions in the marriage equality movement, Muslim women and Islamic feminism, Disney princesses through a social justice lens, and domestic violence. Contact Nadia Brecl ( and Savannah Ducharm ( for more information.
