An exploration of contemporary acoustic music by some of the world's leading female artists. On March 8th, women all over the world celebrate International Women’s Day. A national holiday in many countries and commemorated by the United Nations, International Women's Day is the story of ordinary women as makers of history. Though often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, this day allows women everywhere to look back on a tradition of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development. As a tribute to this tradition, 'Women of the World: Acoustic' is an album that literally sings its praises, exploring the acoustic music of some of the world’s leading female artists.
