Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Councillor Jane Twinney

Ward 3, Newmarket, Ontario

"Back in 2010, I had submitted my name to run for municipal office and I won, beating out an incumbent. This was after losing to this particular man in 2006. I didn’t give up and I want to encourage other women not to give up. I encourage women in my community to think about running for office at every opportunity. It has been a wonderful experience and I hope I see more women taking the plunge."

Kerry Patterson-Baker

Product and Partner Communications MBNA, a division of TD Bank Group

"Women remain stubbornly under-represented in Canada’s boardrooms and legislatures. I have long supported initiatives that work to remove the obstacles that limit a woman’s ability to take their rightful place as leaders and decision makers. This campaign illustrates the ways in which we can all move this important objective forward: BE her, SUPPORT her, CELEBRATE her. I hope you will help."

Avril Benoit

Humanitarian Aid Worker

"Canadians are in no position to hector others on their discriminatory practices against women unless we show, through the meaningful representation of our elected officials, that women have a role in decision-making for the greater good. "

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."

Anne McGrath

Managing Director, Ensight

"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."

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. "

Rita Komarova

Treasurer, EV National Capital Region

"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. "

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. "

Catherine Fortin Lefaivre

EVNCR Executive Committee Member

"Encouraging women of my generation to become leaders in their community has never been so critical. "

Hon. Isabel Bassett

Former Ontario Minster of Citizenship, Culture and Recreation

"Every woman I talk to dreams of seeing more women elected to government. By joining Equal Voice each one of us can help turn these dreams into reality."
