Victoria Beckham's daughter wants to be an inventor.

The 44-year-old fashion designer is raising six-year-old Harper - her youngest child with husband David Beckham - to know her gender doesn't have to hold her back in life and she's proud the little girl is already ambitious.

Victoria - who also has sons Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, and 13-year-old Cruz - said: ''Every day when Harper goes to school, she walks up the school stairs and I give her a kiss. I say, 'Harper, you're a girl, you can achieve anything. You can do anything that you want to do.'

''That's my message to her constantly. 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.''

Victoria was a role model for female empowerment during her time in the Spice Girls, and it's something that's remained important to her throughout her career.

She said: ''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.''

The 'Stop' singer and her retired soccer star husband think it's important for all of their children to understand the importance of hard work.

Speaking at Forbes Women's Summit, she said: ''The boys and Harper know that Mummy and Daddy work really, really hard. We weren't just given any of this.

''Getting success is one thing but maintaining success is a whole other thing. They see that we go to work everyday and work really hard and they have to work hard at school and their passions whatever that might be.''
