Gendered advocacy approach. SAFE Seas developed a variety of strategies for engaging women in community advocacy, based initially on research on women’s needs in fishing communities. In Indonesia, SAFE Seas conducted community-based training for women members of targeted fishing communities to support the early detection and reporting of cases of labor abuse. For example, women villagers in Central Java were provided training on legal rights of fishers, and in North Sulawesi, women were prominent among the trained advocacy volunteers. In the Philippines, project partner Oblates of Notre Dame Hesed Foundation worked closely with women in the target communities, raising their confidence to report labor abuses.
