Study on the gender equality in hotel industry


Sonal Sharma

Status of women in a society gets reflected in the roles played by them in its institutions such as family, political or other social groups. Corporate also echo the same. In Indian industry woman hold more positions of power now than in the past. Indian hospitality industry also shows the same pattern. But compared to their share in population women hold few positions compared to males. This is in spite of a number of measures taken by the government through legislation and policy measures. The vertically typical "Gender Pyramid "is prevalent in this too-lower level occupation with few career development opportunities dominated by women and key managerial positions dominated by men. Earlier studies found the deeply entrenched beliefs and stereotyped attitudes towards women in the workplace to be the main barrier in gender equality. Though India seems poised for superpower status because of its booming economy. However, beneath the spectacular "India Shining" story lurks an area of darkness-the unequal status of its women, who constitute more than half it’s demographic. This study on Gender Equality in Indian Hotel Industry- A study of Perception of male and female employees aims to examine whether female employees of hotel industry perceive gender equality issues differently than male employees.
