Why do women choose an occupation that has been ranked the most dangerous in the nation? What do women give up-and get in return- when they take on the tasks of fisherman? The Entangling Net explores these issues through the stories of twenty women who have chosen to work in this extremely risky, male-dominated profession.show more
