This innovative book brings together a unique collection of research on entrepreneurship centring on gender perspectives in tourism in both Western and non-Western contexts. It serves as a vital reference point for advanced studies on gender issues, allowing the reader to explore current and future challenges and strategies for entrepreneurship in tourism.

Presenting international case studies, top scholars in the field explore the interplay of relationships in gendered entrepreneurship in specific tourism settings. Chapters examine socially constructed understandings of men and women, and how these influence peoples’ social identities and entrepreneurial practices. Building on feminist theories, it provides theoretical, qualitative and quantitative analyses of the topic.

This will be an invigorating read for tourism scholars, particularly those looking at the interconnections between gender and entrepreneurship in tourism. Its wide range of case studies will also make this a useful read for tourism practitioners and policy makers.
