Spice Girls spoofed in Project Everyone campaign for women's rights

To mark the 20th anniversary of the release of the Spice Girls' debut single Wannabe, the Richard Curtis-backed initiative Project Everyone has created a remake of the video, called #WhatIReallyWant.

Project Everyone was founded by the writer and director along with Gail Gallie and Kate Garvey to popularise the UN’s global goals for sustainable development, which were agreed by world leaders last September.

Produced with partners Getty Images and global cinema advertising association Sawa, "#WhatIReallyWant" is designed to reflect the voices of girls and women across the world, telling world leaders what they "really really want" to be achieved to improve their lives.

These include issues like equal access to quality education, an end to violence, an end to child marriage, and equal pay for equal work.

Directed by MJ Delaney and produced by Moxie Pictures, the film features actors, singers and dancers from India, Nigeria, South Africa, UK, USA and Canada. It launches today both online and in Sawa member cinemas.
