Abstract

Tourism plays an important role in economic development of Madagascar. It is essential to the survival of local communities. In fact, women play a crucial role in the management of their household, involved in different production activities. Unfortunately, they are little considered and usually facing inequitable power in several developing countries like the case of women in Anja community reserve. This study, a qualitative descriptive one, uses a discursive eco-feminism approach based on three main framework conditions that have been designated. The first deals with politics, good governance and the institutional framework. The second is at the level of local power relations and in the management of natural resources. The last would direct access and control of resources and access to markets and socio-economic aspects. This study aims to emphasize the importance of feminism role in community based-ecotourism of Anja Reserve. The results found that 84,6% women in Anja are still under the dominance of men whereas 15,4% are self-reliant socially, politically and economically.
