What are the assessments of women in fishing on the impacts of globalisation and their prospects for a better tomorrow?

This interview is the first in a series of interviews that Mundus maris, consistent with the importance given to the gender dimension in its agenda, intends to do sequentially with women involved in the exploitation and / or value adding along the value chains of marine or coastal resources.


Indeed, we have the ambition to take advantage of the opportunities offered by meetings, missions, etc. to collect the opinions of women leaders that we meet in the most varied cultural contexts. The aim is not only to see how the women concerned appreciate the impacts of globalisation collecting and reproducing the most spontaneous expression possible, but also to inquire about their own future perspectives: alternatives? Actions and strategies envisaged for the future at the local, sub-regional and international levels. This was the rationale for conducting this interview with Mrs. Ramatoulaye Barry, a woman fishmonger, leader of one of the women's associations operating at the artisanal fishing port of Boulbinet in Guinea.

We want to listen to the women in the fishing industry themselves and share their experiences and comments. Click here to read the entire interview.
