Underwater photographer; public speaker; DAN/ROLEX Diver of the Year (1995); Marjorie’s Bank dive site named in her honour on the island of Roatan, Honduras. Marjorie Bank was also a role model for female divers. In the words of Jill Heinerth, “Marjorie was exhausted from being marginalized as a large woman in a man’s world. She wanted women of adventure and achievement to be recognized on their merit – not their appearance. She was calling out the diving industry on sexism.” (Sexism: Alive and well in scuba diving, DIVER Magazine Volume 40, Issue 7.)
