MIAMI – The Airbnb community is — and has always been — powered by women.
According to a new earnings report from Airbnb, 55% of their four million Hosts globally are women. This means over 2 million women are currently hosting properties across the globe.
These findings come during an unprecedented time of hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, where a record-setting amount of women left the workforce. Despite this drawback for women, Airbnb has seen a dramatic increase in women becoming Airbnb Hosts in cities all over the world for the very first time — including in Miami.
Airbnb announced this week that it estimates new women Hosts (with one listing) have collectively earned more than $600 million since March of 2020. According to the report, this promising trend has provided a much-needed financial lifeline for women and their families at a time when the economic burdens and sacrifices have fallen disproportionately on their shoulders.
In Miami, new women Hosts who have begun sharing one listing during the pandemic have earned $1.6 million over the past year alone.
