By Rachel McRady
Girl power! Equalization between the sexes! Twenty years ago, the Spice Girls hit the scene with “Wannabe” and started a legacy of pro-feminist messages and toe-tapping tunes. Now, on the anniversary of the girl group’s first hit single, the organization The Global Goals is using the song to move feminism forward.
Recreating the iconic music video are women from all over the world of different ethnicities and religions all lip syncing in the name of girl power.
Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) took it a step further, first writing, “20 years on – Girl Power being used to empower a new generation. So proud of @TheGlobalGoals #WhatIReallyReallyWant,” before sharing her own photo.
The pic is of a handwritten sign that reads, “#WhatIReallyReallyWant… is no more girls dying of HIV! @theglobalgoals. XVB.”
Beckham has been a longtime supporter of the charity mothers2mothers, which aims to educate women in developing nations suffering from HIV.
