"You can call Equal Voice, and they will always be there - not only to explain how politics works for women - but to support female candidates and advocate for change. To me, EV is crucial to ensuring we build a parliament that better reflects the diversity of our country."
"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. "
"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."
"We need to bring gender balance to all levels of government. EV is a national organization that can help create that parity"
"Canadians are in no position to hector others on their discriminatory practices against women unless we show, through the meaningful representation of our elected officials, that women have a role in decision-making for the greater good. "
"Everyone’s life is affected by politics and so everyone should be part of the process. Equal Voice is about ensuring women’s voices and ideas are heard."
"When a woman runs for office, she learns certain lessons. Why should every woman learn them from scratch? Together we can build on each others' experiences and get much further ahead"
"Because equipping women with the tools, knowledge and confidence to become leaders will yield to positive changes in all aspects of life. "
". . . because it’s taken too damn long!"
"It makes a difference and Canada is still lagging in this important measure of democracy."
