According to jazz virtuoso Wayne Shorter, the power of women was shown to him at an early age, especially through the example of his mother.

   In a video introduction to ICAP’s most recent exhibition, Voices of Change—The Power of Women, Mr. Shorter, an ICAP co-president, relates the story of how, despite a worldwide economic slowdown, his forward-thinking mother regularly provided her children with items they could use to fire their imaginations and bring out their creative talents.
