INTERNATIONAL Day for Women in Maritime is celebrated worldwide on May 18 every year to honour women’s accomplishments in maritime spheres. The theme for this year is “Safe Horizons: Women Shaping the Future of Maritime Safety” – and, in fact, women do play a significant role in advocating for improved safety standards in the workplace, tackling environmental concerns and spearheading technical progress in the maritime industry.

Women hold positions as officers, investigators, intelligence analysts and administrators in agencies such as coast guards, maritime police and customs enforcement.
