2015: Eliminating Family Violence

Eliminating Family Violence


The Centre for Women’s Studies and Gender Research, established in 1987, at Monash University brings together expertise in feminist social sciences and humanities research.

The Centre fosters research and teaching collaborations that address women’s equity and produce knowledge about women’s lives and status in society, and the dilemmas and contradictions in gender relations, gender equality outcomes and sexualities in all societies. The gender studies stream within the Sociology teaching program, and the collaborative research activities of the Centre are all informed by the belief that all social processes are ‘gendered’, and that feminist analysis and knowledge is crucial in understanding social processes, power and participation.
