How to use a chart-topper song to make people smile and to highlight gender inequality issues
We’ve already talked about the Spice Girls #tbt events.
In fact, 1996 means the 20th anniversary of the girl band.
Their debut album was at No.1 on the UK album chart and 'Wannabe' conquered the world.
But we have not yet talked about the anniversary of the #girlpower, what better opportunity to do that than now, when women around the world are discussing about the Donald Trump’s misogyny?!
Twenty years after that the Spice Girls brought us the global girl power with Wannabe, the hit has been remade to highlight gender issue.
The 20th anniversary of the Space Girls became a feminist remake, with a new video for “Wannabe” calling for an end to violence against women.
With this funny video, Project Everyone told world leaders what they really, really want, that the World Leaders listen to the voices of girls and women and put them first in policies and plans.
It stars a range of stars from across the globe, including Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez, Canada’s Taylor Hatala, Nigeria’s Seyi Shay, British hip-hop group M.O., and American dancer Taylor Hatala.
Victoria Beckham tweeted:
“20 years on - Girl Power being used to empower a new generation. So proud of @TheGlobalGoals #WhatIReallyReallyWant”
As well Melanie C expressed her support online, she tweeted:
“Flattered and honored that our crazy song is being used so beautifully”
