A SPANISH poet, Alejandra Martinez, has fought back at misogyny in music by entering a compilation of reggae songs in a poetry contest.

The feminist poem uses a mixture of sexist extracts from songs to create a powerful piece which went viral online after she performed it the Madrid ‘Poetry Slam.’

Martinez said she wanted to address the question, “how can you be a feminist and listen to reggaeton?”  The two minute and forty second piece has now been viewed more than 79,000 online, attracting praise from viewers for her innovative take.
