Alt.Latino continues to celebrate Women's History Month by revisiting key interviews in our archives with women who have defined Latin music. This week we revisit a lively discussion about the role women play in reggaeton, as creators and subjects.

Our guests in this episode include Petra Rivera-Rideau, professor of American Studies at Wellesley College, and Omaris Z. Zamora, a transnational Black Dominican Studies scholar and researcher from Rutgers University.

This episode and series is produced by Alt.Latino intern Cat Sposato.
