Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

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"

Anne McGrath

National Director of the New Democratic Party, the Official Opposition

"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."

Sheila Gervais

Former National Director, Liberal Party of Canada

"Women in positions of political leadership make a huge difference in how campaigns are run – and won – and improve the chances of having legislation adopted once elected because of their collaborative approach to decision-making."

Alanna Newman

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. "

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."

Mary Anne Carter

Equal Voice NCR Chapter Co-Chair

"I not only want more women in the House; I want more women managing finance, foreign affairs and national defence."

Amanda Nielsen

President, Athabasca University Graduate Students' Association

"I am proud to call myself an Equal Voice Champion because, with the Canadian Parliament consisting of just 25% elected women and the Alberta Legislature consisting of just 26% elected women, our organization still needs to exist. Until we work ourselves out of a job by seeing more elected woman to all levels of Canadian government, Equal Voice matters."

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. "

Denise Siele

Managing Partner, SEMgroup

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

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."
