Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Sarah Onyango

Civic Engagement Advocate

"If we - as women - want to 'be the change' we want to see in our communities and country, we must drive that change by making sure we help get more women - from diverse backgrounds - to the decision-making table at all levels of government. Gender balance in our legislatures and on our city councils is key to the very legitimacy of our democracy. I want to be a part of the change by being an EV Champion. I invite you to join this powerful movement!"

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."

Jenn Jefferys

Strategic Communications Consultant and Writer

"The more diverse the elected, the more democratically-engaged and impassioned the electorate. To exclude women from leadership is downright nonsensical."

Susan Richards

Former Equal Voice board Member, CEO and Co-founder of Givopoly, Managing Partner and Co-founder of Numbercrunch

""Its simple to me. Equal representation should already be a thing in 2015; in all levels of government and in the boardroom. Let us make it so.""

Lynne Hamilton

Immediate Past Chair Equal Voice

"Electing more women is just common sense."

Hon. Jean Augustine, PC, CM

Ontario Fairness Commissioner

"Women’s voices need to be represented among all levels of government to ensure a civil and caring society. Our political structures require the full and active participation of women to truly reflect the concerns and issues of all Canadians."

Gretchen Kelbaugh

Producer/Director of "Menocracy"

"My great-aunt, Canadian Gertrude Harding, was the head of Mrs Pankhurst’s secret bodyguard during the militant women’s suffrage movement. Her spirit and I salute the work of Equal Voice."

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.""

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."

Alison Loat

Co-founder, Samara

"A Parliament that better reflects the Canadian population is an important step toward making the institution more relevant to its citizens."
