Spice Girls' 'Wannabe' Video Gets Remake to Push Women's Rights: Watch

Spice Girls' "Wannabe" is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month, and the iconic single from their debut album Spice is getting a fresh spin that highlights its girl power message even more. The rework serves as the anthem to Global Goals Campaign's #WhatIReallyReallyWant movement by charity Project Everyone.

The MJ Delaney–produced video features women from all over the world, including Sri Lankan actress Jacqueline Fernandez, Nigerian singer/songwriter Seyi Shay, South African artists Gigi Lamayne and Monoea, U.S. model Larsen Thompson, U.K. R&B trio M.O. and teen Canadian dancer Taylor Hatala.

The purpose of the campaign is to stress equal rights for women, with various messages like "end violence against girls," "quality education for all girls" and "end child marriage" shown throughout the video.

Spice Girl members Victoria Beckham and Mel C have both supported the campaign. “20 years on—Girl Power being used to empower a new generation. I’m so proud of The Global Goals ‪#‎WhatIReallyReallyWant‬,” Beckham wrote on Facebook.

Project Everyone aims to eradicate poverty, injustice and fight climate change.
