Women’s history as seafarers!

Yes, women are now the captain of ships as big as towns. Progress – but oh so patchy, since the days when you had to camouflage yourself as a boy in order to gain the searoving life.

This is a great new way for oral history-based books to have a new life. Seawomen who want to tell their stories and share their pix can simply post them here. It augments the book. And it’s a great way to include people for whom the book had no space, or for people who wanted to join in when it was too late for publication.
