School of Psychology
Molly is a doctoral candidate in the School of Psychology at Victoria University of Wellington. After completing her Honours project with Dr Matt Hammond in 2016, looking at ambivalent sexism and romantic attachment, she developed a particular interest in the relationship between sexism, gender and power. Her doctoral research examines how hostile sexism is shaped by power concerns and whether these dynamics influence people’s decision to seek support. Molly is also part of the Clinical Psychology Programme at VUW.
