Gender segregation in the tourism industry is a critical issue from the lens of the sustainable development goals in the contemporary world. Although it’s not an emerging phenomenon, COVID-19 pandemic has worsened the situation. In this context, this study has two main purposes. First, it intends to examine the gender segregation in the tourism labor force with a comprehensive literature survey. And second, it aims to develop policy implications for the post-COVID era. By means of these purposes, it’s intended to fill the gap in the literature in the axis of post-COVID foresights and policy options. In this respect, after a detailed introduction, the first section is devoted to different dimensions of gender segregation in the tourism industry. Following this background, the second section is attributed to a comprehensive literature review. Then, the third section is assigned to policy implications for the post-COVID era. Lastly, the conclusion gives a synthesis for the gender segregation in tourism labor force and its near future.
