In 1996, the Spice Girls asked listeners to tell them what they wanted (what they really, really wanted), and two decades later girls across the globe are answering: gender equality.
In likely the best video you’ve seen this year (and your entire life), Project Everyone gathered fierce girls worldwide to fight gender injustice to the tune of the iconic '90s girl group's "Wannabe."
It's the same beat and lyrics as well as a similar choreography, but the chalkboards and street art in the video give the song a whole new meaning. What these girls "really, really want" is to end gender violence, gain a quality education, stop child marriage and obtain equal pay for equal work.
“2016 is our chance to use our collective power and tell world leaders what we really really want for girls and women,” the video’s about section reads on YouTube. “If you make the noise, we’ll get your message to world leaders at the UN in September.”
The video is part of the UN’s Global Goals campaign, which aims to fight climate change, poverty and injustice around the world. The intergovernmental organization is also encouraging women and girls to use the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant to share their hopes for global gender equality.
Watch the ah-mazing video for girl power like you’ve never seen it before.
