She could be he in the OP. Feminism comes increasingly from both genders today. There's an improvement.

Your question, "what are people doing to fight sexism in sailing?", is a good one. One of the best things to do, is just speak out against sexism.

I think the same improvements that are happening in society, in general, will be just as positive in sailing as in anything else.

The good news I see is, sexism(like racism and general bias) is dieing away in the generations around me, things are getting much better.

The bad news is, with sexism globally, it's hard to be as optimistic.
