“Wannabe” from ’90s iconic pop group Spice Girls gets the ultimate feminist makeover and now becomes an anthem for the motives and dreams for women across the globe. Courtesy of The Global Goals, performers dance in scenes filmed in India, South Africa and the United Kingdom, all of which rock various signs to express things women REALLY want: equal pay for equal work, an end to child marriage, education and an end to violence against women.

Using the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant, the video encourages viewers to take to social media and express what they desire to change for girls in society. Per The Global Goals, all messages and tweets will be shared with U.N. leaders during the Sustainable Development Summit in September, 2016.

“2016 is our chance to use our collective power and tell world leaders what we really really want for girls and women. If you make the noise, we’ll get your message to world leaders at the UN in September. The Global Goals will only ever be achieved if governments, businesses, communities and YOU invest in girls and women.”

The video has gone viral so quick, it’s no wonder that even The Spice Girls have taken notice and endorsed the project:

Want to support the movement of Girl Power? No, problem. It’s easy.

Check out the video below and share your thoughts on what you want society to change with the assigned hashtag: #WhatIReallyReallyWant.
