This symposium brings together women from different aspects of maritime life. It marks the launch of, an online-platform which aims to connect female artists, researchers and professionals from around the world working on and with the water.

Today, women are sailing the seas in greater numbers than ever before. As shefarers, activists, artists and researchers, they are exploring hydrarchy as an alternative way of living, trying to reclaim ports as public spaces, they fight for decolonisation, sea rescue, fair trade and endangered maritime eco-systems.

This is new. While women have fought with considerable success for gender equality on land, the maritime world seems far behind. The history of the seas is almost exclusively a history of men. And it‘s characterised by war, colonialism and exploitation. Change is needed. Women of the Seven Seas want to support this change. Together we want to make the presence of women* at sea more visible and respond to maritime questions in local and international contexts.
