NEW BEDFORD — The New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center's "Women's Work: At Sea, On Shore, At Home, In the Community" exhibit is now on display at New Bedford City Hall. The exhibit shines a light on the many roles that women play in commercial fishing communities.Through photographs and oral histories, the exhibit profiles nearly fifty women from fishing communities in Massachusetts, Maine, and Rhode Island, and amplifies the voices and experiences of women who work in what is often perceived to be a male-dominated world.
