Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Megan Leslie, MP

Deputy House Leader for the New Democratic Party, Environment Critic

"Working together we can reduce barriers for women in all aspects of politics from political research, writing and organizing, to running for elected office. Having legislatures and decision-making bodies that truly reflect gender balance in this country will create a better Canada for all Canadians – let’s get going!"

Kathleen Walsh

Operations Coordinator, Rideau Institute

"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."

Lana Cuthbertson

Equal Voice Alberta North Chair

""Let's get to 50 percent.""

Catherine McKenna

Executive Director, Banff Forum

"Equal Voice is critical because I can't wait 390 years for the gender gap in Canada - in terms of women's political representation - to be closed!"

Alison Redford

Premier of Alberta (former)

"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."

Amy Kishek

Law student, University of Ottawa

"It's about damn time."

Councillor Diane Deans

Gloucester-Southgate Ward, Ottawa

"Equal Voice allows women to learn from other women who may already have the experience, knowledge, and confidence to make a difference in this country. By inspiring and encouraging future generations, we can together change the future."

Jackie DaSilva

Communications Co-Chair, EV Toronto

"I can only be what I can see: we need a critical mass of women in politics to finally turn the tide on the centuries-old perception of politics as an 'old boys club', into a world that is abundant with women's voices."

Allison Brewer

Former Leader, New Brunswick NDP

"Canadian women don't speak with one voice which is why EV is so valuable in uniting us all in our efforts to get involved, get connected and get elected at every political level throughout this country."

Kimothy Walker

CTV Ottawa News Anchor

"How can we NOT want more women as leaders in politics and business? How can we not want more role models for Canadian girls? How can we not develop public policies that reflect the needs of all citizens to help Canada flourish? How can we not want to be a shining example to other countries where women are silenced?"
