Women as Producers and Consumers of Tourism in Developing Regions

Synopsis

The premises of this unique collection of research are that women's roles in tourism are gendered; that tourism affects women differently than it affects men; and that women themselves are affected in different ways by tourism depending on such factors as race, region, and class. The contributors cover theoretical perspectives; women's roles in tourism in the mature and less-developed tourist destinations; and implications for the future of economic development policy and of gender relations in tourism.
