In 2021, Rosemary connected with JourneyWoman CEO Carolyn Ray. Carolyn had taken over the iconic women’s travel website from Evelyn Hannon in 2019. JourneyWoman was established in 1994 and is known for being the world’s leading expert on solo women’s travel. This is because JourneyWoman publishes content on popular topics of interest to women. This can include articles about safety, self-defense, travel tips, packing, and more.
Together, Women Travel the World and JourneyWoman will give women access to over 750 verified women-friendly tours. These tours will certainly include walking, cycling, slow travel, luxury travel and more. Above all, this resource gives women the ability to support over 200 small businesses. That is to say businesses in over 100 countries around the world from Antarctica to Zimbabwe!
As we return to travel, our two websites — Journeywoman.com and Womentravel.info — will connect women travelers with women-friendly tourism businesses affected by the pandemic. Women are the guiding force in travel. Therefore, we hope that women will play an active role in helping tourism in the countries that need it most. Thus it is evident that the choices we make today will affect our children’s future.
We have already started making upgrades to the Women Travel website. Firstly, we plan to help you rebuild your business as we recover from the pandemic. In addition, we will be adding reviews by women and creating a safety verification program. Our global survey found that 80% of women are more likely to choose travel products if they have been verified by JourneyWoman.
Rosemary will continue to be involved with Women Travel the World and is a member of the JourneyWoman Advisory Council. The council is a group of travel experts that provide women with travel advice.
To create and market a group of websites and social media channels. These will connect women-owned and run travel and tour businesses to women travelers.
