A couple of decades ago, to see a woman with a captain’s or technical uniform on a ferry for many people would have been an unusual view. And today we have more and more women at sea and on the shore as staff, captains or electricians. In support of International Women’s Day, leading ferry operator DFDS is celebrating the female members of its dedicated workforce. In an industry that historically employs more males than females, these women are proving that when it comes to a successful career in the maritime industry, gender simply doesn’t come into it.
