BOLD AS SEA- A TRIBUTE TO FISHER-WOMEN ON THE OCCASION OF LABOUR DAY

A Sea that is powerful, gives life, nurtures and has waves of emotions: Women make more than half of the working population in fisheries- with both paid and unpaid jobs. By recognizing and valuing their contributions, which start from creation and nurturing of life, we are respecting nature itself. Recognizing and redefining their roles is important for sustainable, equitable and gender-just fisheries. BOBP-IGO salutes all the bold women and thank them for their strength, spirit and sweat.
