Rebecca Stewart

Gender Equality Research Fellow (Human society; Sociology; Gender studies; Criminology; Psychology; Other psychology)


I am an interdisciplinary researcher working as a Research Fellow at the Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre. My research interests focus on primary prevention and early intervention, gender equality and young victim-survivors of family violence. My current projects are looking at respectful relationships education, gender equality and sexual harassment in the workplace and help-seeking behaviours in education settings of young victim-survivors of family violence.
