Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Jennifer Mowbray

EVNCR Co-chair

"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."

Nicole Loreto

Vice-President, Communications & Stakeholder Relations, The Royal Ottawa

"We need to bring gender balance to all levels of government. EV is a national organization that can help create that parity"

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."

Alison Redford

Premier of Alberta (former)

"I know I have a strong caucus because it reflects Alberta’s diversity and includes the voices of some very smart and accomplished women. I’m proud to be Alberta’s first female premier and I get so encouraged when I hear other women talk about getting involved in the political process. With organizations like Equal Voice driving this cause forward, I know we’re going to keep making progress."

Megan Harris

Columnist, Toronto Sun

"Increased involvement of women in political leadership roles strengthens Canadian democracy."

Peggy Taillon

President & CEO, Canadian Council on Social Development & Founder, HERA Mission of Canada

"If we want politics to be better, to do better, to reflect the rich diversity of this country and to consider the greater good, we need more women to make their voice heard. "

Michael Chong

Member of Parliament (Wellington—Halton Hills)

"Canadians have only one democratically elected voice in the federal government: their locally elected Member of Parliament (MP). Women and visible minorities are underrepresented in the House of Commons, not reflecting the diversity and composition of the Canadian population. This makes it even more important to ensure that MPs from these under-represented constituencies be accorded the respect necessary to give voice to their views and aspirations. That's why I support Equal Voice's #RespectHER initiative."

Mary Anne Carter

Chapter Liaison, EV National Capital Region

"I not only want more women in the House; I want more women managing finance, foreign affairs and national defence."

Kathleen Monk

Senior Advisor, Broadbent Institute

"Equal Voice challenges women to move beyond exercising influence at the ballot box and supports women in winning seats on the political benches. I’m an Equal Voice champion because I want to see more women winning."

Tina Beaudry-Mellor

Chief Strategist, TBM Strategies and Chair, EV Saskatchewan

"I want our daughters & sons to be so used to seeing women in public leadership roles that it is no longer "exceptional.""
