The International Collective in Support of Fishworkers (ICSF) has released the latest edition of Yemaya, its newsletter on gender and fisheries.

Yemaya No. 59, dated June 2019, features articles from Fiji and India and an article on the 7th Global conference on gender in aquaculture and fisheries(GAF7), as well as an article on the recently-held roundtable in India on organising women by five groups engaged in organising women. The editorial comment calls for urgent need to look at levels of exclusion women are facing, despite the attention received at the international level.

The article on Fiji shows the lack of sex disaggregated data available for any meaningful analysis.

Nikita Gopal, in her article on GAF7, highlights the intersectionalities of power relations existing in the fisheries sector.
The Roundtable highlighted the tremendous gains that women make when they collectively raise their voices in demand of their rights.
The issue also celebrates the recent edition of Slow Fish held in Genoa, Italy. The Slow Fish Forum promotes small-scale fishing and responsible fish consumption and provides a unique space, particularly for women in the small-scale fisheries sector.
