Florence Pugh

The Little Women actress posted a silly selfie with a serious caption. She started her caption with the hashtags, "#istanbulconventionsaveslives, #womenempowerment, #womensupportingwomen," and then educated her followers.

Pugh wrote, "I've been told that the true meaning of this hashtag and this b&w photo- 'It is to shed light onto the Istanbul Convention, women are being subjected to violence and this convention is to end forgiveness for the attacker/murderers.' With that in mind, adjust your hashtags if you didn't already do so."
