"A Parliament that better reflects the Canadian population is an important step toward making the institution more relevant to its citizens."
"Because equipping women with the tools, knowledge and confidence to become leaders will yield to positive changes in all aspects of life. "
"I applaud Equal Voice for its efforts to portray images of strong, dynamic women leaders, regardless of political party affiliation, embedding a national consciousness that women’s leadership makes a difference and matters to all. We don’t have to “Be Her”, but we will celebrate her, write a cheque for her and vote for her. Let’s break the glass ceiling in Ottawa."
"Canadian women don't speak with one voice which is why EV is so valuable in uniting us all in our efforts to get involved, get connected and get elected at every political level throughout this country."
"Having capable, qualified women elected to public office is important in the development of well balanced policies."
"We need more women elected so young girls can have more role models. Electing more women isn't just a desire, it is a necessity for Canada's future. "
""When I ran as a civic candidate, I was shocked by the number of women at the door who indicated that they did not pay attention to politics. Yet, I consistently hear women voicing concerns about issues of government on social media and out in public. What a difference women could make if they chose to be active in our fundamental democratic processes! I am proud to be involved in empowering women to take this initiative. ""
"The more diverse the elected, the more democratically-engaged and impassioned the electorate. To exclude women from leadership is downright nonsensical."
"Hillary Clinton recently said that 'the rights of women and girls is the unfinished business of the 21st century.' I became a national board member for Equal Voice because I would like to help 'finish the business' of attaining greater gender balance in all levels of government in this country. I not only believe we can ... I believe we must."
"Women remain stubbornly under-represented in Canada’s boardrooms and legislatures. I have long supported initiatives that work to remove the obstacles that limit a woman’s ability to take their rightful place as leaders and decision makers. This campaign illustrates the ways in which we can all move this important objective forward: BE her, SUPPORT her, CELEBRATE her. I hope you will help."
