Feminist perspectives in the development of action plans for tourism.

The aim of this chapter is to explain the importance of tourism action plans from a gender perspective, as well as draw out the implications thereof for discussions of sustainable tourism. The chapter begins by presenting the tension that exists with the gender perspective from a feminist approach and the consequence that this may have in a correct understanding of the real meaning and purpose of a gender perspective.
