The Spice Girls song ‘Wannabe’ is back on everyone’s lips after two decades, due to a remix of the anthem has been utilised to highlight women’s rights.
A remake of the 1996 hit video has been released in support of charity The Global Goals‘ #WhatIReallyReallyWant campaign.
The video features women and girls dancing in schools and streets around the world highlighting issues such as violence against women, underage marriage and equal pay for equal work.
So far the video has been shared 17,000 times off of The Global Goals Facebook page and has received more than 975,000 views.
The video asks “What do you really really want for girls and women?” and asks viewers to share and “make the noise” to world leaders.
Former Spice Girls Victoria Beckham and Melanie Chisholm endorsed video. On Facebook Beckham wrote: “20 years on — Girl Power being used to empower a new generation. I’m so proud of The Global Goals.”
Actresses Emma Watson also showed her support for the campaign.
The Global Goals charity said: “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,” the charity said in a statement.
“Girls and women are disproportionately affected by these challenges and are key to building resilient communities to withstand them.”
