The girl power force behind the Spice Girls is still going strong 20 years later, this time in the form of an empowering new campaign. One of the iconic girl group's biggest hits, "Wannabe," got a video remake and caught the attention of Posh Spice herself—for good reason.
The Global Goals (opens in new tab) used the Spice Girls' hit song to launch the campaign #WhatIReallyReallyWant, encouraging girls and women across the globe to tell their world leaders what they want to improve their lives and achieve equality. To do so, the campaign remade the '90s music video "Wannabe," (opens in new tab) this time starring British girl group M.O., Taylor Hatala from Canada, Larsen Thompson from the US, Gigi Lamayne and Monoea from South Africa, Seyi Shay from Nigeria and Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez from Sri Lanka.
In the moving video, girls around the world reveal what they really, really want including quality education for girls, equal pay and an end to child marriage and violence against women.
The video remake comes just in time for the 20 year anniversary of "Wannabe" which debuted on July 8th, 1996. Beckham tweeted the video this morning writing, "20 years on—Girl Power being used to empower a new generation. So proud."
