Thanks also to the Government of Canada (Status of Women & Canadian Heritage) for their financial support.

Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Dr. Zul Merali

President & CEO, University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research

"I am proud to be an Equal Voice Champion because of the strong role women have played in shaping who I am. Women need to bring their voice to the governance of our country. "

Jennifer Mowbray

Advocate

"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."

Laura Beaulne-Stuebing

Chief political correspondent, Yahoo Canada

Michael Chong

Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, Communities and Urban Affairs

"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."

Megan Harris

Columnist, Toronto Sun

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

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."

Monica Lysack

Instructor, Sheridan College

"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. "

Clare Beckton

Executive Director, Centre for Women in Politics and Public Leadership

"Women are over 50% of our population and their participation is vital to the social and economic fabric of our nation. When women are proportionally represented in our institutions of democracy, all the richness of different perspectives are part of decision- making in our country, resulting in better policies,and programs. Now is the time to act and make equitable representation a reality. "

Minh Luu

Chief Social Architect, M&C

"The lack of women in leadership decreases diversity. When we decrease diversity, we decrease the pool from which we draw ideas and solutions. Equal Voice understands that diversity in leadership enriches us all and that's why EV's work is important to a stronger Canada."

Eugene Haslam

Owner, Zaphod Beeblebrox

"I am pleased to be an Equal Voice Champion; to encourage, empower and support women for full and proactive leadership and decision-making in all levels and facets of Canadian life."
