buy a scarf, educate a girl
If you have not seen the feminist version and modern day girl power video of “Wannabe” by Spice Girls, then you are seriously missing out. Project Everyone released this powerful video for United Nation’s Global Goals Campaign to fight poverty, climate change, and inequality and injustice.
The video showcases women of different ethnicities, religion, and ages dancing and singing to “Wannabe”; while celebrating the differences between women in the world. The lyrics and the same infectious and fun energy are the same to the original Spice Girls video, but there are messages places throughout the video encouraging gender equality. Victoria Beckham told The Guardian “How fabulous it is that after 20 years the legacy of the Spice Girls’ girl power is being used to encourage and empower a whole new generation?
We believe that any woman should be able to have the same opportunities as any other human being in the world, and what better way to voice than with one of the most iconic Spice Girls song? This is what Bene believes in and why we have decided to go into this business. Women helping women is a beautiful thing and we are happy to do whatever it takes to make sure gender equality is seen in every part of the world.
How can you become a part of this campaign? Global Goals and Project Everyone are asking women to share their hopes and dreams for gender equality by using the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant.
