Maritime Facts and Figures: WOMEN IN MARITIME

Information sources and statistics relating to maritime and shipping


"Empowering Women in the Maritime Community" was the World Maritime Day theme for 2019. The theme provided an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of gender equality, in line with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to highlight the important contribution of women all over the world to the maritime sector.
