Every Saturday I pick a fabulous, inspiring woman to celebrate as an example of what it means to be a “sucia” in the Dirty Girls Social Club sense of the word — which is to say a fierce, fun, educated, professional woman who doesn’t let anyone hold her back! The term sucia is used ironically in the book and film, to poke fun at those in traditional Latino society who’d say such awesome women were “dirty” or scandalous. I pick each week’s sucia from names nominated through my Facebook page. To nominate someone you know, be sure to “like” my author page on Facebook and join the conversation!

This week’s amazing and inspiring woman is Kim Trujillo, nominated by her sister Sharon. Kim is a former TV reporter here in New Mexico, a talented actress and model, a great mom and a tireless crusader for film and the arts. Yay, you, Kim! Thanks for inspiring us, for being strong and letting your light shine.
