After reading this awesome article from Lone Wolf, I’m realizing that now more than ever the world needs The Spice Girls. It’s not just because I am a child of the 90s, and will always have a spot in my heart for that British pop group, no, it’s for a much more important reason: Girl Power. Even though everything about the Spice Girls was so contrived by executive producers, it shouldn’t discredit what they did, or what they stood for, which was very simple: standing behind your friends, chicks before dicks, in essence: Girl Power. Since when did feminism become about hating men, anyway? I love guys. Really, all of the men in my life are amazing (although if they weren’t so awesome they probably wouldn’t be in my life anymore). I want to go back to the days of glittery pop feminism – when female empowerment was about supporting your lady friends, and enjoying being a girl. The Spice Girls themselves stated that,
“Feminism has become a dirty word, Girl Power is just a Nineties way of saying it…Women can be so powerful when they show solidarity.”Well, I’ll never give up on the good times, because I wannabe a feminist, and you can never have too much: Girl Power.
