"My great-aunt, Canadian Gertrude Harding, was the head of Mrs Pankhurst’s secret bodyguard during the militant women’s suffrage movement. Her spirit and I salute the work of Equal Voice."
"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. "
"I know so many strong, inspiring, intelligent women with innovative ideas. I am a part of Equal Voice because I want to ensure they are encouraged to share their talents with the public to improve our country! "
"Electing more women is just common sense."
"Hillary Clinton recently said that 'the rights of women and girls is the unfinished business of the 21st century.' I became a national board member for Equal Voice because I would like to help 'finish the business' of attaining greater gender balance in all levels of government in this country. I not only believe we can ... I believe we must."
"I want our daughters & sons to be so used to seeing women in public leadership roles that it is no longer "exceptional.""
"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."
"Increased involvement of women in political leadership roles strengthens Canadian democracy."
"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."
". . . because it’s taken too damn long!"
