Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Jackie DaSilva

Communications Co-Chair, EV Toronto

"I can only be what I can see: we need a critical mass of women in politics to finally turn the tide on the centuries-old perception of politics as an 'old boys club', into a world that is abundant with women's voices."

Lana Cuthbertson

Equal Voice Alberta North Chair

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

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?"

Anita Vandenbeld

Member of Parliament for Ottawa West—Nepean

"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"

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."

Dr. Hedy Fry, MP

Member of Parliament for Vancouver Centre

"We need more women at all levels of government in order to make better and more balanced public policy decisions. Women still face multiple barriers to running for elected office, and it is important that elected men and women encourage, mentor, and support them."

Denise Siele

Managing Partner, SEMgroup

"Equal Voice gets it and Canadians get it. Strengthened participation means a strengthened Canada."

Vicky Smallman

Director, Women's & Human Rights, Canadian Labour Congress

"As a longtime member, I am proud to help build EV's membership so women can work together to confront our common challenges. A critical mass will make a difference for women's equality and I'm committed to helping us get there."

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."

Velma Morgan

""Electing more women is a no-brainer. Having diverse voices at the decision making table brings different perspectives and contributes to better public policies that affect us all economically and socially. I am proud to be a part of an organization that supports, celebrates and respects her.""
