Spice Girls' Wannabe video remade to highlight gender inequality

The video calls for an end to violence against women and education for all girls.

IT’S 20 YEARS since the Spice Girls’ debut single Wannabe was a massive hit.

The video has now been remade by artists from around the world in a bit to highlight gender inequality issues.

The new version features artists from Africa, India, the UK, US and Canada.

It’s being shared widely on social media with the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant – a line from the song.

The video calls for an end to violence against women, the end of child marriage, education for all girls, and equal pay for equal work.
