An Assessment of the Challenges Faced by Women Leaders in Tourism KwaZulu-Natal

Dr. Usha Roopnarain

Even with the increased political and economic participation of South African women since the first democratic election in 1994, family life and responsibilities continue to curtail their participation in the economy. The present study has assessed the challenges facing women leaders; specifically highlighting how gender and leadership intersect. The research asserts that women become conscious of these ?invisible? barriers. This research is based on ten semi-structured interviews. The journeys of the ten women interviewed are explored within a context of a South African public entity, namely, Tourism KwaZulu-Natal (TKZN). To advance the theoretical basis of the study, several theories are discussed. This helps to contextualise women's needs and give voice to their concerns in the work environment. The research reveals how leadership impacts women differently from men. This may help policymakers to develop programmes and policies that promote women leaders, enabling aspiring women to climb the corporate ladder. Using insights from theories acquired from feminism, and women empowerment, a conceptual framework is derived.
