Women Seafarers: Solution to Shortage of Competent Officers?
1 John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University, Iloilo City, Philippines
ABSTRACT: This study aimed to determine the participation of women in the seafaring profession. It also looked into the hiring practices of the different manning and shipping companies in the country. It also tackled the hindrances or obstacles a woman seafarer faces in a male dominated world like seafaring. This research utilized the interview approach in data-gathering among the crew managers, and an in-depth interview with a lone woman seafarer participant.
