Twenty years after the Spice Girls went to Number One with the song “Wannabe”, the track’s distinctive video has been remade by Global Goals as a call for women’s rights and an end to gender inequality.
The video, which was produced by the organisation Project Everyone, has been released to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, an initiative to achieve 17 sustainable goals by 2030.
These “Global Goals” include education, gender equality, equal pay for equal work, child marriage and an end to violence against women.
Project Everyone say that girls and women are disproportionately affected by these challenges and are key to building resilient communities to withstand them.
The remake features artists from India, Nigeria, South Africa, the UK, USA and Canada, and has reached 1.4 million views on YouTube so far.
The video encourages people to share their own wishes for girls and women across social media, using the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant. The messages will be presented to world leaders during the UN Sustainable Development Summit in September.
People have been sharing photographs of themselves holding up signs asking for what they want for girls and women.
Here at Safe Motherhood Week the answer is simple – we want access to universal high quality maternal care for all women.
What do you really really want?
