Spice Girls' 'Wannabe' gets feminist makeover

Earlier today, Project Everyone unveiled an exciting remake of Spice Girls' 'Wannabe' for the UN’s Global Goals campaign in an attempt to help "stop child marriage", "end violence against women" and "ensure quality education for all girls".

The message accompanying the video reads: "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."

Spice Girls member Victoria Beckham told The Guardian that it's great to see the song being used for such an important cause: “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?”
