"Young women are our future and engaging them now is key to ensuring a balanced and vibrant democracy going forward."
"It makes a difference and Canada is still lagging in this important measure of democracy."
"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. "
"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."
"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."
"Equal Voice is about change. Changing the face of Parliament, the composition of our legislatures and municipal councils, so that the incredibly diverse voices of women are well-represented at every committee meeting, debate, Cabinet discussion and vote. We should expect no less of our democracy or ourselves."
"Electing more women is just common sense."
"Research shows that there is a direct correlation between a corporation's performance and the number of women in the boardroom and C-suite. Why wouldn't we want to see those same results in politics and government? By supporting Equal Voice's membership campaign, one day we will."
"Everyone’s life is affected by politics and so everyone should be part of the process. Equal Voice is about ensuring women’s voices and ideas are heard."
"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."
