Original and thought-provoking, this Research Agenda investigates the many ways in which tourism is gendered. It outlines current thought and directions for future research, looking forward by imagining and challenging the ways that gender will continue to intersect with and impact on tourism, as well as looking back to trace the key developments and contributions in gendered thinking.

Chapters consider and rethink gender in the context of tourism from multiple vantage points, contexts and perspectives. Divided into three parts, the Research Agenda reflects key threads in a contemporary research agenda: gender theory, analysis and review; gender, tourism and work; and gendered tourism experiences. Bringing together a range of diverse and inclusive contributions, it moves beyond binary assumptions of ‘women’ and ‘men’ towards the intersectionalities among gender, race, class, sexuality and power in relation to tourism.

Highlighting emerging research in the field, along with the methods and paradigms that are at the forefront of gendered tourism research, this Research Agenda will be an invigorating read for critical tourism researchers as well as gender researchers and those in the social sciences more broadly.
Critical Acclaim
‘A Research Agenda for Gender and Tourism critically expands our understandings of the gendered aspects of tourism. This insightful and timely book invites us to explore new theoretical and methodological avenues and shows us how gendered knowledge(s) relate to particular geo-political and historical contexts.’
– Ana María Munar, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark

'An intellectually engaging collection of diverse case studies investigating gender in tourism, framed between a cogent overview of issues and a stunning conclusion by editors Wilson and Chambers. The authors address where are we going as feminist scholars engaged in intersectional research with transformational goals toward equity. Brava!'
– Margaret Byrne Swain, University of California, Davis, US
