This unusual documentary tells the history of women and seafaring in America. We meet modern women performing jobs in commercial shipping. They work on container ships, tankers, tugs and other vessels, as pilots, engineers, mates and ordinary 'seamen'. "Shipping Out" explores the history, mythologies and attitudes which limited women's participation in seafaring until recent times.

For educators, see our 23-page teacher's companion guide for viewing.
