MetadataShow full item record
Women in fishing communities work longer hours than men. This was revealed in a study entitled "Women and the Question of Sustainable Development in the Philippines Fishing Village" made by researchers of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC AQD) here, in this seaside town. Conducted by scientists Susana Siar and Lynn Caneba, the research rejected the popular notion that men are the principal providers, while women are mere "assistants" confined to the house, performing routine household chores.
