||This book addresses issues surrounding the working conditions and welfare of contemporary women seafarers from both developed and developing countries. Based on research commissioned by the ILO, it considers women's participation levels in the industry and examines policies concerning their recruitment, training, maternity and employment rights and other aspects of work and life at sea. It also offers first-hand accounts from women seafarers describing how they have dealt with discrimination, sexual harassment and other difficulties. The practices and policies of national and international regulatory agencies, employers, trade unions and maritime education and training institutions are examined and the report concludes with a series of recommendations.
