This Spice Girls' Remake Has a Powerful Message You Need to Hear

Project Everyone wants YOU to tell the United Nations what you really want. What you really, really want. They recreated one of the most popular hits by Spice Girls, to include an empowering message and call to action.

According to Rolling Stone, the video features international artists from all over the world, including Sri Lankan Bollywood actress, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nigeria's Seyi Shay, and South Africa's Gigi Lamayne and Monea. The video has even caught the attention of Posh Spice, who created the following post in support.

 

Violence against girls, quality education for all girls, child marriage, equal pay for equal work, are the key themes highlighted in the video. Since this is not all-encompassing of the different issues girls and women face all over the world, the video prompts you to submit a photo of the type of change you want through Twitter. Using the hashtag, #WhatIReallyReallyWant, Project Everyone will then submit the photos to the United Nations. 

Last year, world leaders had promised to prioritise girls and women, as part of the Sustainable Development Goals they signed. Come this September, these goals will be presented when they meet again for the UN General Assembly. So, make sure to submit your goal by then.
