“I choose to go there”: Reggaeton’s women are doing feminism on their terms

Reggaeton's women are subverting the wildly popular dance genre's misogynist image and making it their own with an in-your-face ode to their sexuality. The release of "Ram Pam Pam" sees Becky G and Natti Natasha get physical with tantalizing dance moves set to explicit lyrics that leave little to the imagination. "What is the definition of a feminist?" asks the 24-year-old Mexican-American Becky G.
