Abstract: Abstract:The shipping industry is traditionally regarded as an exclusively male preserve and only one or two percent of the global workforces of seafarers are women. In 1998, Taiwanese women started to serve as training ship-officers on container ships. So far, approximately 40 female ship-officers have been working on merchant ships. This study aims to examine the predicament encountered by Taiwanese women seafarers through the qualitative research approach. Schneider’s (1987; 1995) attraction-selection-attrition (ASA) frame as well as organizational socialization are employed to examine our findings. We find that the stereotype “women are not suitable for seafaring” remains prevalent in the Taiwan shipping industry. Nevertheless, some women seafarers are as passionate and committed as their male counterparts under the hegemonic masculinity. According to the ASA theory, we infer that there are still stormy routes ahead for Taiwanese women seafarers. Clearly, the performance of these few active women seafarers would affect the career development and working environment of their successors.
