Abstract

Women's empowerment has been determined to be one of the goals of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The role of women in managing the tourism industry is considered important, because the skills inherited by the ancestors are mostly occupied by women. These skills are cultural treasures that are not owned by other tourist areas, so that they become the hallmark of a tourist area. The approach taken by the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy is to empower women by encouraging women's MSMEs in North Sumatra and providing technical guidance on creative buying in Lake Toba. This study uses a qualitative method. The results of this study indicate that the government and women in North Sumatra have a similar view that women's empowerment can be carried out efficiently through women's MSMEs in the tourist area of the super-premium destination of Lake Toba, North Sumatra
