Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Lesia Babiak

Executive Director, Government Affairs, Johnson & Johnson

"Johnson & Johnson, Family of Companies in Canada has been a sponsor of Equal Voice since 2005. I am proud of Johnson & Johnson's involvement in helping to encourage more Canadian women to seek public office. But as in public life, so too must corporate Canada remove barriers for women keen to serve boards and lead in senior executive positions. Equal Voice is helping to change the face of Canadian politics, but also stimulating important discussion in corporate Canada. I am excited, personally and professionally, to be a part of the EV team."

Fred Sherman

Partner, SEMgroup Public Affairs

"It's really a no-brainer! Better representation means more robust input at decision-making tables. That means better policy outcomes. That's good for Canada."

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."

Amy Kishek

Law student, University of Ottawa

"It's about damn time."

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!"

Kimothy Walker

CTV Ottawa News Anchor

"How can we NOT want more women as leaders in politics and business? How can we not want more role models for Canadian girls? How can we not develop public policies that reflect the needs of all citizens to help Canada flourish? How can we not want to be a shining example to other countries where women are silenced?"

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."

Sarah Onyango

Civic Engagement Advocate

"If we - as women - want to 'be the change' we want to see in our communities and country, we must drive that change by making sure we help get more women - from diverse backgrounds - to the decision-making table at all levels of government. Gender balance in our legislatures and on our city councils is key to the very legitimacy of our democracy. I want to be a part of the change by being an EV Champion. I invite you to join this powerful movement!"

Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell

Canada's 19th Prime Minister

"It makes a difference and Canada is still lagging in this important measure of democracy."

Dr. Hedy Fry, MP

Vancouver Centre

"We need more women at all levels of government in order to make better and more balanced public policy decisions. Women still face multiple barriers to running for elected office, and it is important that elected men and women encourage, mentor, and support them."
