Global Report on Women in Tourism 2010

03.09.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This reports represents a first attempt to map the participation of women in tourism worldwide, by focusing on 5 five thematic strands – Employment, Entrepreneurship, Education, Leadership and Community. The report concludes that in most parts of the world, women are the majority of the touristic labour force and that they perform a significant number of unpaid tasks in family-owned tourism businesses.

In the context of responsible tourism and local development, this study confirms that tourism can be a stepping stone for women’s empowerment while highlighting the challenges that remain to achieve gender equality in tourism.
