Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Etana Cain

Legislative Assistant, Office of MP Craig Scott

"You can call Equal Voice, and they will always be there - not only to explain how politics works for women - but to support female candidates and advocate for change. To me, EV is crucial to ensuring we build a parliament that better reflects the diversity of our country."

Aimee Foreman

Past Equal Voice New Brunswick Co-chair

"“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.”"

Lynne Hamilton

Immediate Past Chair Equal Voice

"Electing more women is just common sense."

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.""

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. "

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."

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."

Jenn Jefferys

Strategic Communications Consultant and Writer

"The more diverse the elected, the more democratically-engaged and impassioned the electorate. To exclude women from leadership is downright nonsensical."

Alison Loat

Co-founder, Samara

"A Parliament that better reflects the Canadian population is an important step toward making the institution more relevant to its citizens."
