About this book

This exciting new WMU book series' volume features the first attempt to include detailed experiences of women in the maritime sector at a global level. It highlights the achievement of women in the maritime sector, in particular, women’s leadership and service to the sustainable development of the maritime industry. The volume contains contemporary studies on maritime women and follows an inter-disciplinary approach. It offers an overview of women's integration into the maritime sector since the late 1980s as well as benchmarking its impact on various levels, such as policy, employment, education, leadership and sustainability. Even 20 years after the Beijing Declaration, gender-related challenges at work still remain in the maritime sector, for example, lack of gender policy,  difficulty in work-life balance, access to education, and leadership opportunities. The book addresses a series of recommendations that may further help the integration of women into the maritime sector.

Reviews

“It gives a broad, energetic, varied picture of a reasoned struggle for the turning of an ancient and outdated tide. … With its models for change this book will inspire, as well as inform. It’s currently the most seminal book on maritime women’s work.” (Jo Stanley, The International Journal of Maritime History, Vol. 28 (4), 2016)
