She looks great in the pics and glad she shuts down the idea of the girls just celebrating the anniversary together.

Geri, what a shot! This is just SO controversial.
This is Ginger f*** Spice, the one who was always telling us how much Woman should come out of the kitchen and rule the world. I feel disappointed. So now we're supposed to believe Girl Power is all about bakery and pleasing your husband? C'mon Geri!

I don't really think she was saying that at all... More like, if that's what women want to do, fine. Raising children and a family is just as powerful and fulfilling for a lot of women... seems she's enjoying doing that. I get it, she's not had that family unit before, after so many years of doing everything by herself.

As a public figure, and as a fan, it's a bit boring suresure, but it's nice to see her happily settled.

Also, it doesn't look like she actually said "being a housewife is liberating" more like the Daily Mail has paraphrased for a better headline :D.

Surely you can do both, rule the world with a whisk in your hand?

She's already ruled the world, achieved more in the past 20 years than many of us will do in our life time.

Plus, girl power was always about CHOICE. They always said you can wear your mini skirt but wear it because you want to, not because you feel you have to. And marriage is about giving yourself to another person, but also receiving the same from your partner. Im not sure why you have such a problem with Geri leading a more conventional life. Its what shes always wanted and yearned for. But it doesn't take away her womanhood or all her achievements by any means.

They probably did paraphrase but even if she did say it, that should be fine. She probably means it in the sense that she felt trapped in her own world before. Now she has what she always wanted, that would feel liberating I guess?

Being financially secure because of your husband is not liberating! It is the exact opposite, it is dependant, liberated means free.


And because of having that financial security, I am FREE to do whatever I want with my time instead of being a wage slave.

I just love this third wave feminist bullshit, "Women should be able to do whatever they want!! (Unless they want to fill traditional gender roles and be a wife and mom. We have no respect for those women doing what they want."

And any of you who think that Geri's priorities and viewpoints on life should be the same as they were 20 years ago need to accept reality. You're probably the assholes who comment "dye your hair red again" on every single Instagram post.

It's been already confirmed that she is richer than him. She's hardly dependent on him.

Great pictures, awful cover quote.

Despite not being a housewife, I agree so much with you, mrssmith! I'm so tired to hear from other people how one should feel nowadays as a "modern woman". :death: (Also, I am working 40 hours a week, have 25 holidays a year - that is not what I would call "being free" and "liberated".)

This whole thing reminds me of the 'Mona Lisa Smile' movie, where Julia Roberts tries to show some really intelligent girls in college that they can aim for bigger plans than getting married and be housewives, like being lawyers, doctors and other important jobs.

At the end of the movie, one of them which was supposed to be a lawyer, decides to be a housewife and Julia Roberts goes mad until she realizes the girl actually chose to be a housewife cause that's what she wanted, not what society forced her to be. So, at the end of the day, that decision was as valid as being a lawyer cause she followed her real desire.

I guess this situation is the same. Geri has been an independent woman for 40 years and now she has chosen to be a housewife. I think it's a fair decision if that's what makes her happy. Obviously it clashes with everything she preached while being a Spice Girl but, at the end of the day, what the Spice Girls wanted was that women chose their own paths, and if being a housewife is what Geri chose (not what she was forced to be), then it's fine. Obviously it doesn't "help" other women and it doesn't empower them to become the better versions of themselves, but it does follow her real desire of the current situation of her life.


Having said that, I still think the cover quote is awful, no matter how much of a truth it is for her. Cause she's free to follow the path she feels comfortable with, but spreading the word that being a housewife is liberating might lead other women to go back in time and get in the kitchen cause that's the "easy, liberating life", instead of actually focusing on their dreams, even if they're harder to achieve. One thing is to choose that lifestyle for you, and a different thing is to empower other women to do the same so they can feel liberated.

You can read the article on Daily Mail and she never said that actual quote in the article though.

I think she is trying to do Madonna again. This time she is doing the 2005 version this time. Like some people mentioned, the actual quote is not mentioned in the interview, but the whole thing is like a democrat turned into a republican. She looks nice in the cover. She looks too fragile in the rest of the photoshoot and basically she talked about everything yet said nothing at all. Nothing about her new music (although she let the music talk for itself the other day...) nothing (new) about a reunion.

I can't wait to read her new novel. Her first (If only) was pretty good.

^ If Only is an autobiography, not a novel! :p

I don't have a huge problem with the headline, if it's really how she feels - although it is a bit strange that the quote doesn't appear in the interview, it does make you wonder if she said it at all or if it's paraphrasing.

hmm maybe if she was a teenage and her 1st experience out of school was being a housewife and said it was liberating, then yeah... that would seem like she chose the path out of pressure by the society

but a woman who's ruled the world and has done EVERYTHING, this is a choice... she has the experience to compare this to being a pop star or whatever...

i know the headline might look bad, but it's the press and whoever reads it that take it to their interpretation
