For this first episode of The Strong Women’s Club podcast, I chose to interview Susie Dvoskin, who has make it her life's work to empower women and to prove to them that they can do whatever they really want to do.

Susie and her husband, Danny, organize the Israel Women’s Triathlon in Memory of Tamar Dvoskin, their daughter, who was killed in a hit and run accident when she was cycling and training for a triathlon, 19 years ago. 

In this episode you will hear:
How Susie teaches her motto “Every Woman is a Winner”, and how she uses that to bring women to accomplish what they thought they never could
How it’s ok for women to put themselves first, and make space to participate in serious athletic events, and how they can build support around themselves in order to succeed.
How reverse discrimination is necessary, to give women a protected environment where they can flourish
How positive energy is circular: if you give it, it goes to those around you, and comes backt to you.
How it’s ok to ask for help, and that asking for help doesn’t mean that you’re weak.
How Susie deals with her cancer, saying that she is “healthy with cancer”.
How teaching synagogue skills to women empowers them to take on roles that have been traditionally male dominated.
How a 50 year-old woman took what she accomplished in the triathlon, and got her PhD.


You will mainly be inspired by Susie’s energy and glow, which you can hear as she speaks.
