Mariner Awareness

A follow up post to “Keeping a Mans World for the Men.” It happens everywhere, some ships more prominent that others, but there’s bound to be a bad apple somewhere in the bushel. I endured sexual harassment while onboard a ship for an 80 day hitch. I filed an investigation which turned up as “unsubstantiated.” The report specifically detailed that shipmates who knew of my situation denied every claim and even denied working closely with me. These were my peers, people I stood watch with every day, did inspections or deck work with every day. I often debated saying anything at all. But I have found that my story speaks louder than I thought it would.
