Using data from 20 Asian countries between 2010 and 2022, this study employed a system generalized method of moments estimation approach to examine the impact of tourism on gender equality. The findings indicate that tourism has a notable and positive influence on gender equality. Specifically, this impact was found to be the strongest and most statistically significant in east and southeast Asian countries, followed by west and central Asian countries, and finally south Asian countries. Furthermore, the effects of control variables related to the economy, education, and employment on gender equality varied significantly across these three subsets of countries. Overall, these results can serve as a catalyst for future interdisciplinary research in the field of tourism and gender equality, ultimately enhancing our understanding of this crucial aspect of the tourism industry.
