Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Avril Benoit

Humanitarian Aid Worker

"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. "

Kathleen Walsh

Operations Coordinator, Rideau Institute

"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."

Councillor Diane Deans

Gloucester-Southgate Ward, Ottawa

"Equal Voice allows women to learn from other women who may already have the experience, knowledge, and confidence to make a difference in this country. By inspiring and encouraging future generations, we can together change the future."

Alanna Newman

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. "

Susan Richards

Equal Voice National Treasurer

""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.""

Lana Cuthbertson

Equal Voice Alberta North Chair

""Let's get to 50 percent.""

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. "

Shari Graydon

Founder, Informed Opinions

"The only way we're ever going to achieve a more equitable distribution of the social costs of perpetuating the species is for women to be sharing our experience-informed perspectives in the corridors of power."

Kimothy Walker

CTV Ottawa News Anchor

"How can we NOT want more women as leaders in politics and business? How can we not want more role models for Canadian girls? How can we not develop public policies that reflect the needs of all citizens to help Canada flourish? How can we not want to be a shining example to other countries where women are silenced?"

Anne McGrath

National Director of the New Democratic Party, the Official Opposition

"Women's participation and leadership is fundamental to our democracy. It's not always easy but more women in politics gives us the potential and possibility of the best possible contribution to progress in society."
