Portrait of Aziza El Saddik

Born in Syria in 1932, Aziza came to Australia more than sixty years ago and remained permanently in Australia from 1972. Seeing the need for Muslim women to have a space to come together, she began organising classes for women and looking after the sick and needy in Southwest Sydney. Aziza was one of the founding members of Muslim Women Australia (previously Muslim Women Association) in 1983.
