Back in September, we invited you to the launch of a new publication, Tourism and Gender-Based Violence.
We are now excited to share a foreword written by Dr Stroma Cole. Stroma is a senior lecturer in international tourism at the University of the West of England and combines her academic career with action research and consultancy.
As gender remains a marginal area of scholarly activity within tourism, it is perhaps unsurprising that gender-based violence has been largely overlooked. The edited book is a timely addition to the existing literature and covers a range of topics related to for example 4th wave feminism, or men’s rights, risk and empowerment alongside the double binds that women travellers face.
You can get a copy of the book here.
