Equal Voice is dedicated to electing and supporting women at all levels of political office. Far too often women are not encouraged to run for office, or are too discouraged to run due to the lack of representation. Research shows that increasing women's representation in electoral politics has a positive effect, not only socially but economically, too.
Over 100 years since the election of the first woman MP, still only 30% of Canadian MPs are women - a record high. In the next federal election, we want to see at least 40% women and gender diverse folks elected to office – we need our Parliament to reflect the Canadian public. It's time for gender parity on Parliament Hill.
Add your name and Equal Voice will let the political parties know that representation matters to voters across Canada and that we want to see women and gender diverse candidates nominated in winnable ridings.
