Obviously, 2020 was awful. The worst. However, full of small joys and appreciation for little things we didn’t know we needed. One of which, I found to be Florence Given. More commonly known as Floss, or the queen of my heart. Florence Given is a British activist, author, and artist, best known for her Sunday Times Bestselling book Women Don’t Owe You Pretty. Her religious scripture for any modern-day women challenges tiresome patriarchal narratives and teaches the art of changing parts of yourself you would grimace at in your peers. The 21-year-old grew up in Plymouth and moved to London at the age of 18 to study fashion. However, leaving her course (and her unworthy boyfriend) led to activism, illustration, a book deal, and a significant social media following. Throughout lockdown, Given would video dances to sixties pop records, proclaiming her love for herself and those who followed her journey to acceptance – urging us to love ourselves the way she does. Not only is her seventies shag a complete dream and her leopard print wardrobe a reason to press ‘follow’ on Instagram, but her daily life affirmations are also a constant reminder to be yourself, as the positives always outweigh the negatives. Florence is the old school feminist we need in present day, and luckily, she’s only a click away.
