Global Girl Power: Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really Want

Posted By on Wed, Jul 6, 2016 at 4:39 PM

This remake of the Spice Girl's 1996 "Wannabe" video is just what the world needs.

The original song, released twenty years ago on July 7, has been transformed with international young artists to support the Project Everyone campaign and their U. N. Global Goals initiative. 


The Project Everyone campaign is a United Nations supported coalition of corporate and independent groups who are putting girls and women first when it comes to policies and plans. 
By listening to the voices of girls and women, the group will be pushing their goals and message to U. N. world leaders in September. 

The group believes in collective power and is encouraging everyone to use the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant and share a photo of what they really, really want for girls and women. 

From the music video's YouTube description:
In 2015 world leaders promised to put girls and women first when they signed up to the Sustainable Development Goals to end poverty, fix climate change and tackle inequalities.
Girls and women are disproportionately affected by these challenges and are key to building resilient communities to withstand them.
That’s why we need to ensure World Leaders and the Secretary General of the United Nations listen to the voices of girls and women and put them first in policies and plans.

The video itself showcases the goals of equality education for all girls, ending child marriage, equal pay for equal work and ending violence against all women. 

So Instead of "get your act together and we could be just fine," how about you join the movement and make a difference. 

Gender should not prevent anyone from achieving their goals, so use your voice and power to tell the world what you really really want.
