The Spice Girls might not be reuniting this summer as we’d all hoped, but the idea of girl power remains 20 years after the band first released Wannabe.
The band’s debut song has been remade by charity Project Everyone, in which women from all over the world tell government leaders what they really, really want – from an end to violence against women to quality education for girls.
It’s honestly one of the most cheering things we’ve seen in weeks, and has already been endorsed by Victoria Beckham.
“I think this film is a wonderful idea,” she said in a statement. “How fabulous it is that after 20 years, the legacy of the Spice Girls’ ‘Girl Power’ is being used to encourage and empower a whole new generation.”
The video features artists from Nigeria, South Africa, the UK, the US, Canada and India. The aim is that the project will prompt women from all over the world to tweet a picture demanding what they’d like to improve their lives using the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant. These will then be presented to the UN General Assembly in September.
So go on ladies, have a think – what do you really, really want for yourselves? For more information, go to Globalgoals.org..
