DIAZ CARRION, Isis Arlene  y  KIDO CRUZ, Ma Teresa. The participation of women in the hospitality industry with gender perspective: a case study in the city of Tijuana (Mexico). El periplo sustentable [online]. 2017, n.33, pp.192-220. ISSN 1870-9036.

Due to an important participation of women as labor force, hospitality industry has been considered as gender awareness. However, this study argues that even these businesses often fall into practices that cast the participation of women, undermining their professional development. To prove it in Tijuana’s hotels, we have used a binary logit model in which gender is the dependent variable. Results were compared with the rates of assessment obtained from the opinion of the workers in this sector. The study found acknowledgement and appreciation of women’ work and a lack of perception of discrimination at work; however, there is a recognition of an inequitable care work distribution and the restrictions this impose over those women interested in stressing a professional career, female concentration in some jobs as well as questioning of their leadership capacity. The paper concludes that gender equity is still under construction in Tijuana’s hotels.
