Merci également au gouvernement du Canada (Condition féminine et Patrimoine canadien) pour son soutien financier.

Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Alanna Newman

Immediate Past Equal Voice Toronto Co-Chair

"We need to engage more women of all ages in the political process, and help them develop the skills and network they need to succeed. Girls interested in politics deserve strong role models. Quite simply, I want more little girls aspire to be Mayors, Premiers, and Prime Ministers. "

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"

Clare Beckton

Executive Director, Centre for Women in Politics and Public Leadership

"Women are over 50% of our population and their participation is vital to the social and economic fabric of our nation. When women are proportionally represented in our institutions of democracy, all the richness of different perspectives are part of decision- making in our country, resulting in better policies,and programs. Now is the time to act and make equitable representation a reality. "

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."

Joan Weinman

Principal, The Melbourne Group

"Hillary Clinton recently said that 'the rights of women and girls is the unfinished business of the 21st century.' I became a national board member for Equal Voice because I would like to help 'finish the business' of attaining greater gender balance in all levels of government in this country. I not only believe we can ... I believe we must."

Michael Chong

Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, Communities and Urban Affairs

"Canadians have only one democratically elected voice in the federal government: their locally elected Member of Parliament (MP). Women and visible minorities are underrepresented in the House of Commons, not reflecting the diversity and composition of the Canadian population. This makes it even more important to ensure that MPs from these under-represented constituencies be accorded the respect necessary to give voice to their views and aspirations. That's why I support Equal Voice's #RespectHER initiative."

Carolyn Chisholm

Senior Advisor, Natural Resources & Environment, Global Public Affairs

"It's high time that I leaned in. Equal Voice is a great organization that I am pleased to support as a way to give back. I believe passionately that women leaders are key to strengthening our democracy and our nation."

Jennifer Mowbray

Advocate

"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."

Nancy Peckford

Executive Director, Equal Voice

"Equal Voice is about change. Changing the face of Parliament, the composition of our legislatures and municipal councils, so that the incredibly diverse voices of women are well-represented at every committee meeting, debate, Cabinet discussion and vote. We should expect no less of our democracy or ourselves."

Dana Levac

Former National Treasurer, Equal Voice

"Because equipping women with the tools, knowledge and confidence to become leaders will yield to positive changes in all aspects of life. "
