21st century Spice Girls – level 3

21st century Spice Girls – level 3

11-07-2016 15:00

It's the Spice Girls but not as you know them. Twenty years after it was first released, this famous girl power anthem has been given a 21st century feminist makeover. The new video is part of Project Everyone's campaign to improve the lives of women and girls everywhere, calling for an end to violence against girls, quality education for all and equal pay for equal work.

The video invites viewers to take a picture of what they really, really want to be passed to world leaders at the UN General Assembly in September.

The project has already gained the backing of the original Spice Girls. Mel C tweeted that she's honoured the song is being used in such a beautiful way, while Victoria Beckham got on board by tweeting this picture.

The organisers say they've already had a very positive response to the video, and you can share your own picture by using the hashtag #whatireallyreallywant.

Difficult words: girl power (women’s rights), anthem (a famous song), gain (get), backing (support, help).
