The Ship Wife Ramble & Roam

The Ship Wife

Renée, the visionary artist, brings to life The Ship Wife, 2021 - a captivating story of an extraordinary female role on 19th century naval ships. Despite commonly-held superstitions that banned women from boats for allegedly bringing bad luck aboard them, captains' wives were given permission to set sail with their husbands and bring families together at sea. These bold adventurers became reigning queens below decks as respected leaders in maritime society; though viewed differently across cultures – heroic versus tragic – one unifying truth remained: sailors may claim marriage with the ocean but these Ships' Wives? They actually tied the knot!
