"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."
"Every woman I talk to dreams of seeing more women elected to government. By joining Equal Voice each one of us can help turn these dreams into reality."
"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."
"Through my project on women and politics, I see how hungry young people are for fairness and equality, and how ready they are to get creatively involved. What they need - what we all need - is the kind of role models and support offered by EV. "
"I know I have a strong caucus because it reflects Alberta’s diversity and includes the voices of some very smart and accomplished women. I’m proud to be Alberta’s first female premier and I get so encouraged when I hear other women talk about getting involved in the political process. With organizations like Equal Voice driving this cause forward, I know we’re going to keep making progress."
"I am proud to be an Equal Voice Champion because of the strong role women have played in shaping who I am. Women need to bring their voice to the governance of our country. "
"It's really a no-brainer! Better representation means more robust input at decision-making tables. That means better policy outcomes. That's good for Canada."
"How can we NOT want more women as leaders in politics and business? How can we not want more role models for Canadian girls? How can we not develop public policies that reflect the needs of all citizens to help Canada flourish? How can we not want to be a shining example to other countries where women are silenced?"
"Increased involvement of women in political leadership roles strengthens Canadian democracy."
