Victoria Beckham supports female empowerment campaign

Victoria Beckham has encouraged women to share the goals they "really really want" to be achieved to improve lives across the world in support of the Global Goals campaign.
 

The 42-year-old fashion designer - who has Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 11, and Harper, four, with her husband David Beckham - has urged her fans to share the goals they "really really want" to be achieved to improve their lives across the world.

She said: "I think this film is a wonderful idea. How fabulous it is that after 20 years, the legacy of the Spice Girls -­ 'Girl Power' -­ is being used to encourage and empower a whole new generation."

The mother-of-four is encouraging all young people to share their ideals by using the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant, inspired by The Spice Girls hit song 'Wannabe', which was released 20 years ago.

Fellow Spice Girl Mel C wrote on Twitter: "Flattered and honoured that our crazy song is being used so beautifully @theglobalgoals #WhatIReallyReallyWant (sic)"

Whilst celebrity chef Jamie Oliver added: "#WhatIReallyReallyWant is total equality for girls and women @theglobalgoals (sic)"

Emma Watson - who is a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador - wrote: "#WhatIReallyReallyWant is to see Goal 5 - Gender Equality achieved @TheGlobalGoals (sic)"
