ABOUT US:

Welcome To the Equal Voice British Columbia Chapter from your Co-Chairs Thoren Hudyman and Olivia Dixon 

What Does the BC Chapter of Equal Voice Want to Accomplish?

We are committed to working to increase women's representation among elected officials. In keeping with Equal Voice's goal to help create a climate in which more women will be elected to help govern, we are forming an action group dedicated to publicly raising the issue of under-representation of women in British Columbia, both in our legislature and in our national Parliament.

Historically, the the chapter's executive committee includes a variety of women who are committed to working across party lines to advance women's representation at the municipal, provincial and federal levels. 

The two principal purposes of this chapter are to:

  1. Host and organise public events to increase awareness about the significant under-representation of women in the federal/provincial/municipal Canadian political sphere;

  2. to encourage political parties and grassroots organisations to nominate and elect more women for all levels of political office.

Equal Voice British Columbia works to influence each major political party to ensure that they make a credible effort to promote the participation of women in politics, and to help women secure nominations and win elections.
