EBWA--Welcoming All Women of All Ages


EBWA October 29

Fragrance in the Desert :  Deborah Fowler


“Human trafficking is the trade of humans, most commonly for the purpose of sexual slavery, forced labor or commercial sexual exploitation.”

While living in Kuwait, local author Deborah Fowler became acquainted firsthand with human trafficking through the women serving as maids.  Their situation so distressed her that she made a promise to not only bring awareness of the abhorrent crimes of trafficking, but through collaboration with others, provide restorative care and a sanctuary for women and girls who are survivors. Her book, Fragrance in the Desert, tells the story.  Deborah will talk about her book and her involvement in the Coalition to End Human Trafficking October 28.  All interested women are invited. If you plan to attend the program only, be sure to arrive before 8 pm

Come for socializing at 5:45 or for the vegetarian meal served at 6:15.  To make reservations, contact Gabrielle Reals at by Monday October 26 or call her at 382-5685 by 8 pm Tuesday October 27.  If you require a gluten- free meal please include that information when you make your reservation.  Cost of the evening including the meal is $15; program only is $3. 


Looking ahead:    November 19, “Glamour Girls Need Not Apply”, the story of Betty Sonneborn as a World War II Cadette

We operate without elected officers.  All activities are coordinated by a steering committee of persons who simply like being a member of a group of all women.  Responsibilities are shared and rotated.  Help decide on programs, get to better know the women involved and double your enjoyment of EBWA.  For general information:  Contact Carol Hamblin, 861-6034;
