Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Sheilagh O'Leary

Immediate Past Chair, Equal Voice Newfoundland and Labrador, Deputy Mayor, St John's NL

""Gender equity in politics is essential to enhancing quality of life for all. Encouraging mentorship for young, aspiring women is my personal mission.""

Catherine Fortin Lefaivre

Principal, CFL Communications 2014 Municipal Candidate, Ottawa

"Encouraging women of my generation to become leaders in their community has never been so critical. "

Aimee Foreman

Past 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.”"

Elizabeth Weir

Research Fellow in Residence, University of New Brunswick

". . . because it’s taken too damn long!"

Alison Redford

Lawyer, First Female Premier of Alberta

"I know I have a strong caucus because it reflects Alberta’s diversity and includes the voices of some very smart and accomplished women. I’m proud to be Alberta’s first female premier and I get so encouraged when I hear other women talk about getting involved in the political process. With organizations like Equal Voice driving this cause forward, I know we’re going to keep making progress."

Dr. Hedy Fry, MP

Vancouver Centre Liberal Party

"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."

Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell

Canada's 19th Prime Minister

"It makes a difference and Canada is still lagging in this important measure of democracy."

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."

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."

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."
