  • Product Description
 

There has been a growing body of literature examining the role that the tourism industry plays on the lives of women employees. These studies have tended to focus on women in Western countries and developing countries. Both positive and negative aspects of tourism employment have been addressed. However, there has been relatively little attention paid to the employment of Muslim women in the tourism industry in the Middle East, North Africa or the Arabian Peninsula. Therefore, this book will help to bridge this gap in the literature in understanding the experiences and meanings of tourism employment for Muslim women, including the positive and negative aspects of this form of employment. Theoretical analysis of the study provides new ways to understand the potential role of tourism employment for women in Muslim societies, which includes exploitation versus empowerment, resistance and social change. Hence, the book provides a stepping-stone towards understanding the changing role of Muslim women, and should be especially useful for academic professionals and tourism policy makers, or anyone else who may be interested in the area of Muslim women and tourism employment studies.
