One proud women seafarers advocate


She’s Fairer as a Seafarer (#SFAS) is our worldwide campaign which started in 2013 and fosters the welfare of women serving the maritime industry, particularly in a male-dominated profession called seafaring.

Folks, these bold women have been sailing the high seas, fight boredom, homesickness, isolation and even sexism on-board but no storm has sunken their dreams to go great lengths.

Below blog posts talk about their compelling stories:

3. Nina da Silva: Philippine’s pioneering Marine Chief Engineer

5. Prey Ponceja: The seawoman who took social media by storm
