A little bit about the work that the women of Galicia do from the inspirational @cristinamittermeier ...just one of the many important roles that women play in the fishing industry:

Without nets, there is no fishing, and the painstaking job of repairing damaged nets, falls to a valiant group of women known as “redeiras”. Invisible almost within the world of fishing, they are anything but quiet. Through hard work, lobbying and solidarity, they have slowly gained more visibility and recognition in Galicia. I had a chance to visit with them and enjoyed the warm camaraderie among the 8-10 women who work in this shop. Carmina, Sara, Conchi and Lucy hosted me on this day with kindness and patience as I stumbled with their nets. Moving at lighting speed with needle and thread they quietly make sure fisherfolk have tools to work with.
