Victoria Beckham was advocating girl power to the world more than 20 years ago, and she continues to instill that empowering message of equality in her daughter Harper.
The fashion designer says the important piece of advice that she gives her six-year-old daughter daily is to pursue her dream, as she can achieve anything – especially at a time when women’s rights and gender equality are being pushed to forefront.

“Every day when Harper goes to school, she walks up the school stairs and I give her a kiss,” the former Spice Girl said at the recent Forbes Women’s Summit in New York (via Hello!).
“I say, ‘Harper, you’re a girl, you can achieve anything. You can do anything that you want to do.'”
The designer says she regularly assures Harper that she can achieve the same as her brothers – if not “more” – while lovingly describing her daughter as a “strong smart little woman”.
She also shared Harper’s dream job for the future.
“That’s my message to her constantly,” she continued. “She knows she can do everything and probably more than her brothers can. We talk about it a lot. She wants to be an inventor and she’s very proud of that. She’s a strong smart woman – little woman.
“I am still banging on that drum and I am not going to stop. I don’t think any of us want to stop. It’s a very important time for women right now.”
Victoria had also revealed at the summit that she tries “really hard” to be “the best mother, wife and professional”, and credited “incredible husband” David for his support and sharing equal household duties.

“I am trying to be the best wife and the best professional,” the star explained. “When I get home I try to put the phone down and spend time with the children and spend time with David.”
She added: “I have the support of an incredible husband. We really are equal with everything we do at home with the children. When I’m away he’s the one doing the school run and doing the cooking.”
The power couple recently vehemently denied social media rumours that they were planning to divorce.
