Overview

JOIN THE DISCUSSION
Shipping has historically been a male-dominated industry and that tradition runs long and deep.
Social perceptions even today lean to indicate that such jobs require skills more associated with men. Both families and society do not encourage women to choose seafaring as their career. Absence of relevant educators and of organizations further contribute to the lack of stimulus for women.
