Watch the Spice Girls Shut Down ’90s Sexism in this Video

Note to anyone who dares step up to Ginger, Scary, Baby, Posh and Sporty with any kind of misogynist talk: you will get zig-a-zig-ahh’d. As this rare video—unearthed from the 90s—can attest, The Spice Girls do not suffer trifling fools gladly and this video shows that the group represented feminism on and off the camera. When a director asks them to show more cleavage during what was supposed to be an ad for Polaroid in 1997, they go off on the sexist request. Girl (Em)power!
