"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. "
"“Deep change in our political system is needed. I believe it will only be achieved when our elected officials truly represent our citizenship; including ensuring a balanced gender perspective. More women running = more women winning.”"
"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."
""Its simple to me. Equal representation should already be a thing in 2015; in all levels of government and in the boardroom. Let us make it so.""
"Canadians are in no position to hector others on their discriminatory practices against women unless we show, through the meaningful representation of our elected officials, that women have a role in decision-making for the greater good. "
"Involving women in the democratic process is about more than improving the representativeness of our political system. It is about fostering a policymaking process that is truly receptive to and reflective of the unique perspectives Canadian women bring to the table. Done properly, greater inclusiveness results in policies that more accurately reflect the breadth of Canadian society and experience, and that are more adept at upholding the common good for all Canadians."
"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."
"Encouraging women of my generation to become leaders in their community has never been so critical. "
"Increased involvement of women in political leadership roles strengthens Canadian democracy."
"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."
