Celebrate HER.

Equal Voice National EVE Awards (Ottawa and Toronto):

Every spring and fall, Equal Voice works with its Toronto and Ottawa chapters to honour two outstanding women with the EVE Award for her outstanding contribution to advancing women in public life.   We were honoured in 2012 to celebrate Premier Alison Redford and Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath.

You can watch video footage from Equal Voice’s EVE Award Toronto recipients including former Deputy Prime Minister Anne McLellan, The Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell, former Ontario Minister Isabel Bassett.  For an overview of all of EV’s Award recipients, click here.

International Insights Panel:

In collaboration with our Ottawa chapter, Equal Voice hosts its annual International Insights panel to hear more about women’s participation in politics around the globe.  These panels create a forum where ambassadors, diplomats, elected officials and EV members and supporters can learn about the success stories and challenges women are experiencing around the world. 

Equal Voice Toronto’s Ontario Legislature Welcome Back Event:

Equal Voice Toronto regularly welcome women MLAs back to the House after each provincial election.

Stephanie Kusie, MP

Calgary Midnapore Conservative Party Immediate Past Equal Voice Alberta South Chair

""When I ran as a civic candidate, I was shocked by the number of women at the door who indicated that they did not pay attention to politics. Yet, I consistently hear women voicing concerns about issues of government on social media and out in public. What a difference women could make if they chose to be active in our fundamental democratic processes! I am proud to be involved in empowering women to take this initiative. ""

Michal Harewood

Former National Youth Chair, Equal Voice

"Young women are our future and engaging them now is key to ensuring a balanced and vibrant democracy going forward."

Kathleen Monk

Strategic Communications & Public Affairs Consultant

"Equal Voice challenges women to move beyond exercising influence at the ballot box and supports women in winning seats on the political benches. I’m an Equal Voice champion because I want to see more women winning."

Hon. Carolyn Bennett

MP (St. Paul's) & Chair of the federal Liberal Women's Caucus

"At Women’s College Hospital the motto is Non Quo Sed Quo Modo – “it’s not what you do but how.” It’s the same in politics and more women change not only what is discussed but how we work together to make change in the public good. "

Kathleen Walsh

Director of Policy at Evidence for Democracy

"I want to see more women in politics so that that one day it will no longer be acceptable for the media to concentrate on a female politician's appearance rather than her policies. I believe EV can, and does, help shape the media's portrayal of women in politics."

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.""

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."

Megan Harris

Columnist, Toronto Sun

"Increased involvement of women in political leadership roles strengthens Canadian democracy."

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."
