Currently, the nation’s attention is concentrated on the long-standing sexual misdeeds conducted by prominent political, sports, and entertainment figures, which has been succinctly captured by the “#Me Too” movement.

#MeToo Issues in Religious-Based Institutions and Organizations is an essential research book that provides comprehensive research into the effects of the #MeToo movement on institutions and organizations with a significant religious basis and reveals challenges and issues of welcoming gender and diversity.

Theron Ford (Ed.)
Theron Ford is a newly retired Associate Professor who appreciated the time she has had to reconnect with old friends, and to cultivate new ones, both domestically and internationally. With the luxury of time on her hands she is continuing to focus on social issues that have shaped her professional agenda--public education, racism in education, the intersection of gender and racism as well as utilizing effective strategies to counter the rise of white supremacy nationally and worldwide. Dr. Ford continues to live in her home state but looks forward to wintering in Jamaica each year. She derives a major sense of accomplishment from actively mentoring anyone who seeks to gain knowledge.
