"Women in positions of political leadership make a huge difference in how campaigns are run – and won – and improve the chances of having legislation adopted once elected because of their collaborative approach to decision-making."
"If we want politics to be better, to do better, to reflect the rich diversity of this country and to consider the greater good, we need more women to make their voice heard. "
"Young women are our future and engaging them now is key to ensuring a balanced and vibrant democracy going forward."
"Canadians' support for electing more women from coast-to-coast-to-coast is so encouraging! Join EV so that we can further empower Canadian women to have their voices where it counts - at the political decision making table. Let's make this happen and ...now!"
"Women's participation and leadership is fundamental to our democracy. It's not always easy but more women in politics gives us the potential and possibility of the best possible contribution to progress in society."
"I can only be what I can see: we need a critical mass of women in politics to finally turn the tide on the centuries-old perception of politics as an 'old boys club', into a world that is abundant with women's voices."
"It's about damn time."
"I want to see more women in politics so that that one day it will no longer be acceptable for the media to concentrate on a female politician's appearance rather than her policies. I believe EV can, and does, help shape the media's portrayal of women in politics."
"It's high time that I leaned in. Equal Voice is a great organization that I am pleased to support as a way to give back. I believe passionately that women leaders are key to strengthening our democracy and our nation."
"Equal Voice allows women to learn from other women who may already have the experience, knowledge, and confidence to make a difference in this country. By inspiring and encouraging future generations, we can together change the future."
