Thanks also to the Government of Canada (Status of Women & Canadian Heritage) for their financial support.

Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Anne McGrath

National Director of the New Democratic Party, the Official Opposition

"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."

Hon. Raynell Andreychuk

Senator

"Involving women in the democratic process is about more than improving the representativeness of our political system. It is about fostering a policymaking process that is truly receptive to and reflective of the unique perspectives Canadian women bring to the table. Done properly, greater inclusiveness results in policies that more accurately reflect the breadth of Canadian society and experience, and that are more adept at upholding the common good for all Canadians."

Kimothy Walker

CTV Ottawa News Anchor

"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?"

Nicole Loreto

Vice-President, Communications & Stakeholder Relations, The Royal Ottawa

"We need to bring gender balance to all levels of government. EV is a national organization that can help create that parity"

Minh Luu

Chief Social Architect, M&C

"The lack of women in leadership decreases diversity. When we decrease diversity, we decrease the pool from which we draw ideas and solutions. Equal Voice understands that diversity in leadership enriches us all and that's why EV's work is important to a stronger Canada."

Kerry Patterson-Baker

Product and Partner Communications MBNA, a division of TD Bank Group

"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."

Allison Brewer

Former Leader, New Brunswick NDP

"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."

Aimee Foreman

Equal Voice New Brunswick Co-Chair

"“Deep change in our political system is needed. I believe it will only be achieved when our elected officials truly represent our citizenship; including ensuring a balanced gender perspective. More women running = more women winning.”"

Megan Leslie, MP

Deputy House Leader for the New Democratic Party, Environment Critic

"Working together we can reduce barriers for women in all aspects of politics from political research, writing and organizing, to running for elected office. Having legislatures and decision-making bodies that truly reflect gender balance in this country will create a better Canada for all Canadians – let’s get going!"

Hon. Isabel Bassett

Former Ontario Minster of Citizenship, Culture and Recreation

"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."
