"CAPIRE": Anthem of the World March of Women

the spring of 2000, we invited women from the participating groups to write
their own verses using the World March musical theme. We received over 40 songs
from 23 countries. Some groups even sent us a recording of their song. It was so
inspiring to hear the different rhythms and sounds! "
