The day is used to promote the movement for equal rights for women and this year is especially significant as it marks 100 years since women’s suffrage in Ireland and the UK.

In the century since, the feminist movement has been at the forefront of the fight for equal rights and opportunities for women and its goal remains relevant and needed.

But as with any movement and ideology, feminists may disagree about what exactly their focus should be on and what feminism means to them. So what does it mean to you?

Today’s poll, Are you a feminist? 

Poll Results:

No (6702)
Yes (6582)
Don't know (1578)
