Recognition and Policy
The almost complete lack of recognition of women fishworkers in policy is a matter of great concern. Often the focus of policy makers, in keeping with gender stereotypes, is on fishermen and the actual act of fishing. There is little focus on the significant and varied roles that fisherwomen play in all aspects the fisheries sector: in artisanal and small-scale fisheries, and in commercial fisheries and related fish processing activities. The State often has little or no data or statistics on the actual labour contribution of women in the sector, as well as on the issues and problems faced by them. Women are, as a result, denied access to institutional and state support, and capacity-building interventions. They cannot avail of development resources and programmes. There is little regulation of labour conditions in fish processing work within the organized and unorganized sector, even though these tend to be poor and exploitative. Finally, fisherwomen tend to be excluded from decision-making processes and governance at family, community and state levels. This lack of recognition for women’s contribution in the sector is also a deterrent to the ability of women fishworkers to self-organize, to access and control livelihood resources, and to negotiate with different actors in the sector. The documents under this theme draw attention to these issues, and recommend various steps that need to be taken by policy makers and other actors to support women in the fisheries sector.
