Spice Girls’ Song Re-invented as Girl Power Anthem
The Spice Girls brought a brand of pop music to the world in the late 90's that was full of girl power. Little girls felt like they were part of something, because all the Spice Girls were different, yet they used those differences to make one awesome group.
Now in 2016, Project Everyone is reincarnating Spice Girls song "Wannabe" into a feminist anthem. I mean, it kind of always was, but now it is official.
The video is being used as part of the UN's Global Goals campaign to fight climate change and to help to eradicate injustice and poverty, specifically when it comes to women around the world.
The About section on the video states:
Using the #WhatIReallyReallyWant hashtag, share a photo of yourself holding up what YOU really, really want for girls and women…
In 2015 world leaders promised to put girls and women first when they signed up to the Sustainable Development Goals to end poverty, fix climate change and tackle inequalities.
Girls and women are disproportionately affected by these challenges and are key to building resilient communities to withstand them.
That’s why we need to ensure World Leaders and the Secretary General of the United Nations listen to the voices of girls and women and put them first in policies and plans.
2016 is our chance to use our collective power and tell world leaders what we really really want for girls and women.
If you make the noise, we’ll get your message to world leaders at the UN in September.
The Global Goals will only ever be achieved if governments, businesses, communities and YOU invest in girls and women.
The video features some notable women as well, including Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez, British hip hop group M.O., American dancer Taylor Hatala and artists from around the world.
