Video: This remake of Spice Girls' 'Wannabe' seeks to empower women
Twenty years after the Spice Girls' came out with their famous song 'Wannabe', the song's video has been remade to highlight issues faced by women across the world in the 21st century.
The Guardian reported:
The video features artists from India, Nigeria, South Africa, the UK, USA and Canada, a diverse roll-call that includes superstar Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez and London R&B trio M.O. The famous video has been remade to push a series of UN global goals including education, gender equality, equal pay for equal work, child marriage and an end to violence against women.
The Daily Mail reported:
In the first scene young women in Mumbai dance in the street dressed in Spice Girls inspired 90s outfits whilst a banner in the background reads 'end violence against girls'. The video them changes to a scene showing a group of young Muslim girls in a classroom where the words 'quality education for girls' is written on the blackboard. The classroom morphs into one in Cape Town, South Africa, and young African girls dance in the street where 'end child marriage' has been spray painted on a wall near them.
