Ensuring Women have a voice in global tourism


The lack of equal opportunities for women, particularly in decision-making processes, has a negative impact not only on their personal and professional lives, it is detrimental to whole communities. The absence of women at the heart of decision-making in tourism continues to stall the advancement of women, men and their families, whether in rural Africa or urban Europe. Equality in Tourism believes that without a rigorous gender analysis in the thinking, development, practice and evaluation of tourism, women will continue to be exploited. In the same way as a human rights approach to business is now recognised as integral to sustainability, so must a gender approach become part of that same agenda. Without a gender dimension and a reframing of policies, any attempts to build sustainable tourism policies and business will be negated.
