To coincide with their upcoming reunion tour the Spice Girls have released merchandise supporting Power Up, a charity that champions women’s equality. Items include t-shirts and sweaters that read #IWannaBeASpiceGirl. “Equality and the movement of people power has always been at the heart of the band.
