""When I ran as a civic candidate, I was shocked by the number of women at the door who indicated that they did not pay attention to politics. Yet, I consistently hear women voicing concerns about issues of government on social media and out in public. What a difference women could make if they chose to be active in our fundamental democratic processes! I am proud to be involved in empowering women to take this initiative. ""
"Women's participation and leadership is fundamental to our democracy. It's not always easy but more women in politics gives us the potential and possibility of the best possible contribution to progress in society."
