In 1996, the Spice Girls blew people’s mind with their song ‘Wannabe’ and 20 years later, the remake of it has gone viral for all the right reasons. The song that has been viewed over 200,000 times within 24 hours fights for women’s rights and highlights issues like violence against women and underage marriage.
It was recently tweeted by Posh Spice Victoria Beckham, who said: 20 years on – Girl Power being used to empower a new generation. So proud of @TheGlobalGoals #WhatIReallyReallyWant
In the video, the British girl group M.O., Taylor Hatala, Larsen Thompson, Gigi Lamayne, Monoea, Seyi Shay along with Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandes tour the world through streets and classrooms for The Global Goals’ #WhatIReallyReallyWant campaign.
The video has garnered massive support on social media with renown people, including Emma Watson and Sporty Spice Melanie C talking about it.

Jacqueline, who appears in the video says, “We need to create a community where girls feel strong, safe and supported and have equal access to education, technology, health and sanitation. What I really, really want is for people to recognize the potential of girls when they are allowed to study instead of doing household chores. And what I really, really want is to end violence against women. I want women to feel powerful and beautiful. Nothing can stop us once we are given equal opportunities and are allowed to flourish in a secure, supportive environment. The world needs a dose of girl power and that’s why I’m supporting the Global Goals Campaign for girls and women.”
