YWCA Presents- Words of Wisdom: A Tale of Two Women.

When we listen we learn. Between them, Hana Assafiri and Donna Stolzenberg have enough pearls of wisdom to give string together a necklace for every woman of earth.

The vibrant duo have forged their own unique paths using intuition and innovation, leading them to live very dynamic lives. One a food icon founder of Moroccan Soup Bar and “Speed Date A Muslim”, the other a force of good on the cold streets and creator of Melbourne Period Project.

Hosted by Nevena Spirovska, the night will showcase the successes of Hana and Donna, whilst demystifying some women’s uncomfortable relationship with their own.

YWCA Victoria invites you to share an intimate and enlightening evening with these two women; banter between the books at Hares & Hyenas. Doors at 7pm for a 7:30 start. Tickets $15 or $10 for YWCA Members.

Whether it is fostering social cohesion through community events or creating a safe, diverse space for Muslim women to share their stories, Hana Assafiri is a compassionate and unspoken
hero within the Victorian community celebrated for both her generosity and success as a businesswoman.

Donna Stolzenberg is the founder and director of Melbourne Period Project, The School Project and Blanket Melbourne. Her cultural background as a member of the Ngajtumay and Mirning
people connects her to the systematic issues encountered by Indigenous Australians who are over represented in homelessness statistics.
The event is a fundraiser for YWCA and will be recorded as a ‘Quickie’ podcast. Guests are encouraged to bring one question along with them.
