"I am pleased to be an Equal Voice Champion; to encourage, empower and support women for full and proactive leadership and decision-making in all levels and facets of Canadian life."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"We need more women elected so young girls can have more role models. Electing more women isn't just a desire, it is a necessity for Canada's future. "
"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."
"I not only want more women in the House; I want more women managing finance, foreign affairs and national defence."
"Having capable, qualified women elected to public office is important in the development of well balanced policies."
"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."
