Professor Stewart has published many scholarly articles and several books, focusing on the feminist theory and the psychology of women’s lives, personality, and adaptation to personal and social changes. Her current research, which combines qualitative and quantitative methods, includes comparative analyses of longitudinal studies of educated women’s lives and personalities; a collaborative study of race, gender and generation in the graduates of a Midwest high school; and research on gender and science and with students and faculty.
