The importance of tourism on enhancing socio economic development of the local community is widely recognized in Africa. This book is an inspirational focus on the main gender issues in the tourism industry. It addresses causes, effects, constraints and challenges encountered in the provision of tourism services. The book is premised on the assumption that albeit earnings from Tourism industry at the national levels are very impressive, yet, there is a paradox on the gendered contribution of tourism wealth to the local community. The book discusses gender issues, dynamics and pragmatic path on enhancing equity in Tourism industry. It goes further to analyse systemic challenges and behavioural approaches to strengthen the industrial provision of tourism services. Moreover, a critical analysis of the pragmatic path followed by the owners of tourist hotels and curio shops in the process of designing, developing and strengthening their knowledge on gender issues at their work places is given. Lastly, a book offers a call for designing a gender sensitive monitoring and evaluation tools for tracking gender issues in tourism industry.
