Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Tina Beaudry-Mellor

MLA Regina University Saskatchewan Party

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

Jackie DaSilva

Communications Co-Chair, EV Toronto

"I can only be what I can see: we need a critical mass of women in politics to finally turn the tide on the centuries-old perception of politics as an 'old boys club', into a world that is abundant with women's voices."

Sheilagh O'Leary

Immediate Past Chair, Equal Voice Newfoundland and Labrador, Deputy Mayor, St John's NL

""Gender equity in politics is essential to enhancing quality of life for all. Encouraging mentorship for young, aspiring women is my personal mission.""

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."

Kathleen Walsh

Director of Policy at Evidence for Democracy

"I want to see more women in politics so that that one day it will no longer be acceptable for the media to concentrate on a female politician's appearance rather than her policies. I believe EV can, and does, help shape the media's portrayal of women in politics."

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. "

Sandy Mayzell

Founder, Dancing Backwards

"Through my project on women and politics, I see how hungry young people are for fairness and equality, and how ready they are to get creatively involved. What they need - what we all need - is the kind of role models and support offered by EV. "

Allison Brewer

Former Leader, New Brunswick NDP

"Canadian women don't speak with one voice which is why EV is so valuable in uniting us all in our efforts to get involved, get connected and get elected at every political level throughout this country."

Nicole Foster

National Chair Equal Voice

""Being a part of Equal Voice is an incredible opportunity to support and engage with a diverse community of women leaders. Their leadership is essential to our democracy.""

Carolyn Chisholm

Senior Advisor, Natural Resources & Environment, Global Public Affairs

"It's high time that I leaned in. Equal Voice is a great organization that I am pleased to support as a way to give back. I believe passionately that women leaders are key to strengthening our democracy and our nation."
