Women Transcending Boundaries
After Sept. 11, Betsy Wiggins of Syracuse, N.Y., wanted to reach out to Muslim women. An Imam at a nearby mosque gave Wiggins the phone number of Danya Wellmon, a Muslim leader who speaks for the women in that community.
Over a meal of couscous, curry, and baklava, 18 women—Muslims, Jews, Christians and Buddhists—introduced themselves and exposed each other to their beliefs.
Two years later, more than 300 women have attended WTB meetings.
