Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Councillor Jane Twinney

Ward 3, Newmarket, Ontario

"Back in 2010, I had submitted my name to run for municipal office and I won, beating out an incumbent. This was after losing to this particular man in 2006. I didn’t give up and I want to encourage other women not to give up. I encourage women in my community to think about running for office at every opportunity. It has been a wonderful experience and I hope I see more women taking the plunge."

Catherine McKenna

Minister of Environment and Climate Change

"Equal Voice is critical because I can't wait 390 years for the gender gap in Canada - in terms of women's political representation - to be closed!"

Megan Harris

Columnist, Toronto Sun

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

Fred Sherman

Partner, SEMgroup Public Affairs

"It's really a no-brainer! Better representation means more robust input at decision-making tables. That means better policy outcomes. That's good for Canada."

Dr. Hedy Fry, MP

Vancouver Centre Liberal Party

"We need more women at all levels of government in order to make better and more balanced public policy decisions. Women still face multiple barriers to running for elected office, and it is important that elected men and women encourage, mentor, and support them."

Michal Harewood

Former National Youth Chair, Equal Voice

"Young women are our future and engaging them now is key to ensuring a balanced and vibrant democracy going forward."

Alanna Newman

Immediate Past Equal Voice Toronto Co-Chair

"We need to engage more women of all ages in the political process, and help them develop the skills and network they need to succeed. Girls interested in politics deserve strong role models. Quite simply, I want more little girls aspire to be Mayors, Premiers, and Prime Ministers. "

Lesia Babiak

Executive Director, Government Affairs, Johnson & Johnson

"Johnson & Johnson, Family of Companies in Canada has been a sponsor of Equal Voice since 2005. I am proud of Johnson & Johnson's involvement in helping to encourage more Canadian women to seek public office. But as in public life, so too must corporate Canada remove barriers for women keen to serve boards and lead in senior executive positions. Equal Voice is helping to change the face of Canadian politics, but also stimulating important discussion in corporate Canada. I am excited, personally and professionally, to be a part of the EV team."

Megan Leslie

Former NDP MP president and CEO of the World Wildlife Fund Canada

"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!"

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. "
