"The only way we're ever going to achieve a more equitable distribution of the social costs of perpetuating the species is for women to be sharing our experience-informed perspectives in the corridors of power."
"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."
"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?"
"I know so many strong, inspiring, intelligent women with innovative ideas. I am a part of Equal Voice because I want to ensure they are encouraged to share their talents with the public to improve our country! "
"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. "
"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. "
"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."
""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.""
"We need to bring gender balance to all levels of government. EV is a national organization that can help create that parity"
"A Parliament that better reflects the Canadian population is an important step toward making the institution more relevant to its citizens."
