Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Claire Detheridge

Councillor of 31 yrs, Cape Breton Regional Municipality

"Women have a perspective that needs to expressed. We are an equal to our male counterparts; remember votes for women translate to stronger voices for women. "

Monica Lysack

Instructor, Sheridan College

"As a former candidate, I know how important it is to be encouraged to run and have the right set of supports and networks – even across party lines. EV’s work is so crucial to getting more women on the ballot. "

Hon. Raynell Andreychuk

Senator

"Involving women in the democratic process is about more than improving the representativeness of our political system. It is about fostering a policymaking process that is truly receptive to and reflective of the unique perspectives Canadian women bring to the table. Done properly, greater inclusiveness results in policies that more accurately reflect the breadth of Canadian society and experience, and that are more adept at upholding the common good for all Canadians."

Dana Levac

National Treasurer, Equal Voice

"Because equipping women with the tools, knowledge and confidence to become leaders will yield to positive changes in all aspects of life. "

Raylene Lang-Dion

National Chair, Equal Voice

"Canadians' support for electing more women from coast-to-coast-to-coast is so encouraging! Join EV so that we can further empower Canadian women to have their voices where it counts - at the political decision making table. Let's make this happen and ...now!"

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."

Jill Poulton

Executive and Life Coach

"We each have value and are valuable. As women, our participation is vital to the process of creating a culture that is conducive to the pursuit of our potential. Leaders at all levels influence the creation of this culture. Future generations are looking to us to step up and lead the way."

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."

Daryna Kutsyna

President of Equal Voice - University of Toronto

""A more representative government is a government that is more inclusive, more functional, and more accountable to its constituents. By getting more women elected to all levels of public office, we ensure a system that is better to all through being rooted in fundamental equality and complete franchise.""

Hon. Lisa Raitt, MP

Halton, Minister of Labour

"Studies have proven that women improve the management and performance of companies. Meaning that we, as women in politics, must also be improving the management and performance of this country. So I will continue to work to ensure there are more women. This is not only an issue of moral or ethical equality - it's just good sense."
