In 2003 Glenda Cloughly wrote the words for a lament for the people of Iraq, only days before the invasion of Iraq was launched. Judith Clingan wrote a tune and 150 Canberra women gathered in the foyer of Australian Parliament House to sing this lament on 18 March 2003, when John Howard, the Australian Prime Minister, declared Australia's participation in the invasion. This action launched A Chorus of Women. See 'About A Chorus of Women' for more detail.

The CD was launched by ACT Senator Kate Lundy at the ACT Legislative Assembly on Monday 11 December 2006. Chorus sang a selection of songs from the CD and Kate Lundy gave a very moving speech about the role A Chorus of Women had played in voicing the concerns of citizens, including politicians.
