"You can call Equal Voice, and they will always be there - not only to explain how politics works for women - but to support female candidates and advocate for change. To me, EV is crucial to ensuring we build a parliament that better reflects the diversity of our country."
"Because equipping women with the tools, knowledge and confidence to become leaders will yield to positive changes in all aspects of life. "
"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! "
"If we want politics to be better, to do better, to reflect the rich diversity of this country and to consider the greater good, we need more women to make their voice heard. "
"Increased involvement of women in political leadership roles strengthens Canadian democracy."
"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."
"Young women are our future and engaging them now is key to ensuring a balanced and vibrant democracy going forward."
"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."
"Through my project on women and politics, I see how hungry young people are for fairness and equality, and how ready they are to get creatively involved. What they need - what we all need - is the kind of role models and support offered by EV. "
"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."
