Equal Voice promotes the election of women by:

  • Working with all political parties to increase the nominations of women candidates; 
  • Promoting electoral and other changes that would increase the numbers of women in politics; 
  • Conducting outreach with young women to inspire and engage them in politics as a future career choice; 
  • Encouraging women to run for office through programs such as our comprehensive, bilingual on-line campaign school; 
  • Raising awareness about the impact of women's under-representation; 
  • Celebrating women in politics; and 
  • Communicating and implementing EV's goals and activities through innovative programming, Equal Voice's chapters, our dynamic website, regular newsletters, media releases, Twitter and Facebook activity, and by hosting major events.
