Abstract

This study aims to explain the impact of overtourism in Balinese women lifehood with literature study method. Tourism in Bali is developing very fast. The rapid increase of tourists has led to the escalation of overtourism in Bali. Overtourism demands more infrastructure to fulfill tourist’s need. As a result of this demand, overtourism poses a threat to the sustainability of Bali. In a patriarchal society like Bali, women will be the group that is more affected by overtourism. This study shows that Bali tourism industry failed to empowered women and enforce their position as second class citizen. Gender discrimination and exploitation in tourism industry have become a daily reality for Balinese woman. For Balinese women, overtourism destroy their lifehood.This situation called for total reform in Bali tourism industry to prevent the return of ‘old normal’ overtourism.
