This paper is based on a survey answered by 151 female officers from 18 countries. This survey comprises the following areas: Socio-Demographic, Labour, Work-Life Balance, Leadership Style, Harassment situations and an open section where they can express their ideas.
Title and description can be found on the first row.
A questionnaire was developed by a team of psychologists and seafarers (both women and men), divided in several sections comprising questions regarding:

  1. Socio-Demographic factors: such as age, marital status, type of contract, position on
    board, qualification, experience and environmental components.
  2. Labour factors: discrimination perceived, support, some questions about the feelings
    of having to perform better than male officers, stressing factors, different treatment
    for being a woman and family tradition.
  3. Work-Life Balance: with questions about motherhood, family life, relations, work
    satisfaction, relationships on board, etc.
  4. Leadership Style: this section tries to identify any dissimilar behaviour within
    colleagues, port staff and subordinates because of gender differences, focusing on
    leadership characteristics.
  5. Harassment Situations: clear or veiled situations of harassment from superiors,
    colleagues or any other. The use of a masculine behaviour. The ability to handle
    unpleasant situations.
  6. Finally, a free section for suggestions.
    The survey is currently online, so it is accessible at . It is our intention to leave it online as long as
    possible and to keep getting answers.
    The items are five-point Likert type scale, ranging from never to always, or strongly disagree to totally agree, when applicable.
    The software used was the Google Docs platform
