DescriptionWomen, Leisure and Tourism provides a comprehensive discussion of women, leisure, and tourism through the lens of leisure production and consumption, both by women and for women. Specifically, this text includes a multi-cultural perspective to highlight the unique attributes leisure brings to women, the role of women in leisure entrepreneurship, and the creation of supportive, inclusive environments to enhance female well-being through the examination of these activities in often overlooked populations. The diversity of women's leisure and tourism practices is best perceived through the links between various leisure practices (e.g., sport, outdoor recreation, travel and tourism, learning, crafts, events, family leisure), as well as an understanding of leisure production across cultures and life stages. These chapters bring to the forefront many of the challenges inherent in providing leisure and tourism that support the diverse needs of women, as well as a look at female innovation that is also often overlooked in leisure research. The book includes examples of both applied and conceptual chapters from global perspectives in academic studies. This book:
- Is written by multi-disciplinary authors.
- Includes case studies, research methodologies and pedagogical approaches to highlight the complexity of gender studies and provide a diverse toolkit to support further research on women and gender.
- Presents applied and conceptual chapters from global perspectives in academic studies.
This book is valuable for academics and graduate students of tourism, leisure and gender studies.
