Who are your female heroes? For Rosie, it took a long time of searching for her to find the type of women she could relate too and felt like she wanted to emulate. Tura Santana was one of those women.
Tura was a Burlesque Queen from the 1950s onward. She starred in sexploitation films such as Russ Myers’ Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill! She was a mother and grandmother.
Tura passed away on February 4, 2011.
