If you were a kid during the 1990s, you are probably very much aware of the Spice Girls. They were essentially the biggest British girl group back then, consisting of Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, Geri Halliwell, and Melanie Brown.
Their first song was called "Wannabe" and it immediately hit no.1 in a staggering 37 countries when it was released in 1996. The Spice Girls are also considered as the biggest British invasion of music since 'The Beatles.'
But what if their "Wannabe" music video was reimagined to fit today's society and feminist movement? Check it out!
This video was made by Project Everyone, which was made by filmmaker and Comic Relief founder Richard Curtis to ensure that each and every person will know the Global Goals of the United Nations.
Likewise, the video released by Project Everyone is part of the United Nations campaign to combat global warming and get rid of both corruption and poverty around the world.
However, watching the video will easily make you realize that the girls "really really want" something absolutely awesome.
Domestic abuse against girls is an alarming issue that should be stopped, alongside all other forms of violence.
This advocacy is growing as more and more people have begun to raise their voice for the young girls who are married too young with older men.
If people create enough attention toward these feminist issues, perhaps the leaders at the United Nations will listen in September.
The project included Jacqueline Fernandez, Taylor Hatala, and British group M.O., among others.
The former Spice Girl member said that it was nice to know that even after two decades, their music could still be used to empower a new generation of girls.
If women want to speak up, they could use the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant to be part of the collective effort.
After all, the Spice Girls was were seen as a diverse group of girls. But in the end, every woman has things that they all need and want to happen.
