"You can call Equal Voice, and they will always be there - not only to explain how politics works for women - but to support female candidates and advocate for change. To me, EV is crucial to ensuring we build a parliament that better reflects the diversity of our country."
"As a former candidate, I know how important it is to be encouraged to run and have the right set of supports and networks – even across party lines. EV’s work is so crucial to getting more women on the ballot. "
"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."
"As a longtime member, I am proud to help build EV's membership so women can work together to confront our common challenges. A critical mass will make a difference for women's equality and I'm committed to helping us get there."
"Having capable, qualified women elected to public office is important in the development of well balanced policies."
"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."
"Working together we can reduce barriers for women in all aspects of politics from political research, writing and organizing, to running for elected office. Having legislatures and decision-making bodies that truly reflect gender balance in this country will create a better Canada for all Canadians – let’s get going!"
"I not only want more women in the House; I want more women managing finance, foreign affairs and national defence."
"It's about damn time."
"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."
