Spanish-Catalan poet, trade unionist, journalist, feminist and athlete of Republican Spain.
Together with Josefina Carabias, Martínez Sagi was a key journalist of the Republic. She interviewed various people, including beggars, prostitutes, and Catalan politicians. Martínez Sagi's articles focused especially on women's suffrage, a controversial issue at the time. She joined Durruti Column as a journalist during the war. In addition to his journalistic work, she also published several books of poetry. Her desperate and distressed style was similar to that of the Latin American poets Juana de Ibarbourou, Alfonsina Storni, and Gabriela Mistral. After her first book of poetry, Caminos, was published in 1930, Alberto Insúa compared Martínez Sagi to Rosalía de Castro. As a feminist, Martínez Sagi espoused ideas which came from France. She founded the first club of women workers of Barcelona, which worked to improve literacy among women.
