Lisa Borders, the CEO of Time’s Up, resigned earlier this week after her son was accused of sexual assault.
A statement was released saying,
“On Friday, Lisa Borders informed members of TIME’S UP leadership that sexual assault allegations had been made against her son in a private forum.”
“Within 24 hours, Lisa made the decision to resign as President and CEO of TIME’S UP and we agreed that it was the right decision for all parties involved. All of our actions were fully guided by our support for survivors.”
“We respect the rights of all survivors to own their own stories. We strongly encourage anyone who has experienced sexual harassment, assault or related retaliation in the workplace or in trying to advance their careers to contact the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund for assistance.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, a woman on Facebook accused Borders’ 36-year-old son of sexual harassment. He has denied all claims.
