On International Women's Day this year, My Feminism is informed by all of the incredible women in my life.

I'd like to celebrate all of the women and girls who have joined me in the lab, at the gym, in the boardroom, at the dance recital and on Parliament Hill.

I'm inspired by your tenacity, your intelligence and your ambition.

Our solidarity makes us strong, and I am certainly stronger for having known you.

So, tell me, how are you bringing feminism to life today?

Use the hashtag #MyFeminism and tell us what it means to you.
