If there is any further proof needed that the Spice Girls established their very own wave of feminism, a clip has been unearthed of Mel B and Geri Halliwell scolding a male producer for suggesting they show cleavage and their midriff in an advert where they were dressed as schoolgirls.

The edited video is a behind-the-scenes clip of the girl band at the peak of their fame shooting an advert for Polaroid in 1997.

Wearing white shirts, grey skirts and ties, the girls are suddenly seen charging towards two male members of the production team after claiming the men suggested they show more skin.

“Why did you ask to have a cleavage showing and a midriff showing?” Melanie Brown aka Mel B asked the man.

“It’s every man’s fantasy,” he replied to an unimpressed Scary Spice.
