    Gender imbalance in academia has received increasing attention all over the world. However, research on this highly important issue with regard to tourism academia is still in its infancy. To address the research agenda on gender, this study explores Chinese women scholars' perceptions of gender issues in Chinese tourism academia through qualitative interviews. The findings show that Chinese women scholars generally have a low awareness of gender issues, influenced by several factors such as personal experience, family supports, and characteristics of tourism academia. Thirteen gender-related differences in tourism academia were further identified under three themes: the representation of gender gaps, gender factors contributing to these gender gaps, and gender inequality or discrimination. The paper concludes that more research on this issue is needed.
