Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Rebecca Scott

Regional Director, Extendicare Assist at Extendicare & EV Toronto Co-chair

"I know so many strong, inspiring, intelligent women with innovative ideas. I am a part of Equal Voice because I want to ensure they are encouraged to share their talents with the public to improve our country! "

Denise Siele

Managing Partner, SEMgroup

"Equal Voice gets it and Canadians get it. Strengthened participation means a strengthened Canada."

Mary Anne Carter

Equal Voice NCR Chapter Co-Chair

"I not only want more women in the House; I want more women managing finance, foreign affairs and national defence."

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."

Elizabeth Weir

Research Fellow in Residence, University of New Brunswick

". . . because it’s taken too damn long!"

Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell

Canada's 19th Prime Minister

"It makes a difference and Canada is still lagging in this important measure of democracy."

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. "

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."

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."

Anita Vandenbeld

Member of Parliament for Ottawa West—Nepean

"When a woman runs for office, she learns certain lessons. Why should every woman learn them from scratch? Together we can build on each others' experiences and get much further ahead"
