Abstract

The pace of advancement for women managers continues to be slow and uneven in different countires and cultures (Burke, 2009). In India, research and surveys reveal that men outnumber women in terms of attaining top managerial positions (Centre for social research, 2009), and they appear to be underrepresented at managerial levels in Indian Hotel companies (HVS 2011-12). There are studies conducted on the issues of women representation in management jobs worldwide in general, but very few studies exclusively focused on women in hospitality are available in the Indian context. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive review of articles published on women managers in major hospitality journals in the period from 1993-2012. A total of 48 articles are included and are classified into two areas of career management, namely career advancement and career constraints/barriers. The results are presented with the discussion of these articles by period, journal name, and research focus, type of research, location and key findings. The analysis points to the challenges faced by women managers to progress in their professional career, which in future may be used to investigate the factors contributing to their low representation in management in Indian Hospitality Industry.
