The Spice Girls were promoters of "Girl Power" and I think that Wannabe does a good job of promoting the idea. Wannabe brings up the idea of men meeting the requirements of women, and not the other way around. In society, the common view is that men have specific qualities that they are looking for in a woman and if they don't meet them then they move on to the next girl. In Wannabe, the Spice Girls are making the men change for them. That is what "Girl Power" is to me. For most of history, women were not equal with men. Luckily, that has changed in many aspects of life. However, I feel like in the realm of relationships women are still viewed as less than men. Women are expected by society to look and act a certain way around men. This idea is portrayed in the media frequently. Just look at something like How I Met Your Mother. The women Barney always picks up in bars are the hot ones with a great body, and aren't that smart. I like that the Spice Girls turned that around in their music video. Even their nicknames in the group suggest that girls don't have to act in a certain way. Their nicknames are Posh Spice, Sporty Spice, Scary Spice, Baby Spice, and Ginger Spice. This shows that girls can be sporty, or classy or anything that they want to be. I like that about the Spice Girls. Plus, their songs are pretty good!
