Women Who Inspire – Margaret Hoff
Margaret Hoff inspires me because I have been hearing her voice for many years. She has the courage, passion and commitment to give voice to issues of importance in London; issues that may be controversial, issues that challenge the ‘status quo’. Margaret continues to give voice even when ignored, shut down, or strongly opposed. She makes things happen – no matter how long or hard she has to invest to do it! She founded London’s Daycare Services Committee, worked on London’s Governance Task Force, focused community efforts on transit, housing and electoral reform. Most importantly to me as a member of Women and Politics, she co-founded Project 88 with other inspiring women. This went on to be Project 91, 94, 97 and 2000, an important initiative to get more women elected in London. She continues to work on behalf of women in our community, and provides advice to our Women and Politics group. Her voice makes a difference, and inspires others to raise their voices. We can do so much with our united voices, so let’s all be inspired by Margaret and use our collective voice to make London a better place for women!
