Struggles and Movements
Across the globe, women fishworkers have struggled to bring to the fore their issues and concerns. Their struggles have been on many fronts. Their roles in nurturing and sustaining the family and community, and their economic contribution to household, local and national economies, are rarely recognized. They face gender discrimination at home, as individuals and at work, as labourers. Their public and private rights are denied; they are excluded from decision-making fora; they face atrocities in markets from local thugs and middlemen; their health is adversely affected; and they face sexual harassment and physical violence. Those engaged in small-scale fisheries find it difficult to compete with powerful traders, exporters and others, in globalized markets. Women in the fish processing sector are often migrant and unorganized labour, who are discriminated against and work in poor conditions. Women affected by disasters, such as the recent Indian Ocean tsunami, are particularly vulnerable, with relief and rehabilitation efforts being largely insensitive to their specific concerns. The last few decades have, therefore, witnessed the rise of fishworker movements. Women fishworkers have organized either as part of fishworker organizations or as autonomous solidarity networks, community groups, associations and federations to defend their own rights and community interests. In the process, they have overcome many hurdles, including opposition from their homes and communities and failure to be taken seriously by decision-makers. The documents in this theme deal with various aspects of the struggles of women fishworkers and their organizations.
