Since ancient times, the maritime world has been regarded as extremely gendered and considered a male domain. Why have women been regarded as inferior in the maritime world? Why have they been marginalized in relation to ships? This book analyzes the mechanisms and preconceptions behind gender bias in the maritime world.

This book especially focuses on a correlation between ships and women’s bodies.
