2/4 ISLAMIC FAITH FOR WOMEN IN THE MIDDLE EAST
Vicki was born in Australia and trained to be a Secondary school teacher but currently is a pastor of a church in Glen Waverley.
Note from Speaker:
"As I am speaking on Islam I have to be careful with what I say and it’s not appropriate to ask Muslims especially to come along and listen to me. Although I speak sensitively, respectfully and from personal perspective and experience, this is more to inform non-Muslims so they can have a greater understanding of both Islamic religion and culture and its impact on women. Vicki"
