Women are exploited in tourism, says study

The Centre for Responsible Tourism (CRT) unveiled a study on women workforce in Goa’s tourism sector which questioned the myth that tourism provides employment opportunities to women.

The study was unveiled at a consultative session held by the Goa Church affiliated organisation. Father Savio Fernandes of CRT said, “The sense of the meeting was that the women are generally being commoditised as products in tourism.” He demanded that gender diversity must be part of a new tourism policy of the State and also questioned the present model of tourism development.
