Seaweed Fishing in Zanzibar
Zanzibar has two main islands and around 50 surrounding islets and if you’re on one of the islands as the sun rises chances are that you will see the woman of Zanzibar knee deep in the water harvesting seaweed.
Seaweed is the third largest industry after tourism and cloves. 80% of the workforce are women and the money they make can help send their children to school and to build houses. Lisa De Bode travelled to Zanzibar, for the World Policy Journal, to meet the women and find out what the challenges will be moving forward and whether or not the women be able to meet them?
