Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Kathleen Monk

Strategic Communications & Public Affairs Consultant

"Equal Voice challenges women to move beyond exercising influence at the ballot box and supports women in winning seats on the political benches. I’m an Equal Voice champion because I want to see more women winning."

Rosemarie Leclair

Chair & CEO, Ontario Energy Board

"Research shows that there is a direct correlation between a corporation's performance and the number of women in the boardroom and C-suite.  Why wouldn't we want to see those same results in politics and government? By supporting Equal Voice's membership campaign, one day we will."

Lana Cuthbertson

Equal Voice Alberta North Chair

""Let's get to 50 percent.""

Anne McGrath

Deputy Chief of staff to Rachel Notley

"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."

Sandy Mayzell

Founder, Dancing Backwards

"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. "

Dr. Zul Merali

President & CEO, University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research

"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. "

Fred Sherman

Partner, SEMgroup Public Affairs

"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."

Raylene Lang-Dion

Ottawa Community Activist and Feminist

"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!"

Laura Ross, MLA

Regina Qu'Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan

"Having capable, qualified women elected to public office is important in the development of well balanced policies."
