Academic women and travel poster

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding

Abstract

This poster focuses on travel undertaken by academic women moving through public spaces when travelling for the business needs of their higher education institutions. Recent studies show that, of women who travel, 47% travel for business, and are actually the fastest growing segment of business travellers. (Skift, quoted in Maiden Voyage 2016) Further, 31.4% of 200 female business travellers surveyed by Maiden Voyage, have suffered sexual harassment whilst travelling and 70.2% believed that travel suppliers should try harder to address the needs of female business travellers. Also, the majority of the women surveyed (79.2%) claimed that they were under-prepared to deal with [negative] incidents they encounter. Of those who are, training tends to be non-gender specific. However, there is little data available that specifically addresses the experiences, including preparation activities, of academic women who travel on business for their institutions.
