Shipping Out: The Story Of America's Seafaring

Series Website »
SHIPPING OUT: THE STORY OF AMERICA'S SEAFARING WOMEN celebrates the modern-day women who work in commercial shipping - on the container ships, bulk cargo carriers and tankers, coastal tugs, barges and ferry boats that traverse America's waterways. The program explores the little-known history, mythologies and traditional attitudes which, until recently, limited women's participation in seafaring. This unusual documentary meets the harbor and bar pilots, tug boat captains, marine engineers, mates, ordinary "seamen" and stewards who continue to reshape the definition of "women's" work.
