A remake of Spice Girls' classic 'Wannabe', which turns 20 years old on Friday July 8, features artists from across the globe, in countries such as India, Nigeria, South Africa, the UK, USA and Canada.

In it, the ladies aim to tell world leaders exactly what it is that girls and women really, really want before the end of this year.

September 2016 will see world leaders mark the first anniversary of the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals, put in place to end poverty, fix climate change and address inequalities over the next 15 years.

To make those Global Goals famous so that they stand the greatest chance of being achieved, campaigner and filmmaker Richard Curtis teamed with Gail Gallie and Kate Garvey, with the trio founding Project Everyone, launching the Global Goals campaign.

This year, Project Everyone has convened the first Global Goals campaign for girls and women to fight for Goals famous, financed and focused on girls and women.

Directed by MJ Delaney and produced by Moxie Pictures, this 'Wannabe' remake #WhatIReallyReallyWant features an array of actors, singers and dancers including big names such as the USA's Larsen Thompson, Canada's Taylor Hatala and Bollywood's Jacqueline Fernandez from Sri Lanka.

Worldwide, it's reported that a whopping 35% of women have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence.

Though a record 143 countries have guaranteed equality between the sexes in their Constitutions by 2014, another 52 haven't yet taken the step.

Just 22% of all national parliamentarians are female, and whilst there has been some progress throughout the years, on average women in the labour market are still earning 24% less than their male counterparts across the world.

With it being so clear that women still need their voices to be heard by so many to gain equality, we have to champion this cause. Women are by no means the inferior sex, so we have to treat them exactly how men are treated. As one. As equals.
