To mark International Women's Day 2020, the ITF has produced a podcast looking at the persistent problem of gender segregation in the transport industry.

Jodi Evans, ITF women transport workers and gender equality officer, talks with professor Tessa Wright from the Centre for Research in Equality and Diversity, Queen Mary University of London. The show also features Jasmin Labarda, a shipping captain from the Philippines.
