Currently, the nation’s attention is on the long-standing sexual misdeeds conducted by prominent political, sports, and entertainment figures, which has been captured by the “#Me Too” movement. This movement has spread to call into question the actions of leaders of religious institutions and organizations, providing the context for research into the experiences of individuals and groups as they engage with them. This book provides comprehensive research into the effects of the #MeToo movement on religion-based institutions and organizations and reveals challenges and issues of welcoming gender and diversity. It provides insights and tools for improving social conditions in their personal lives, in places of worship, in organizations, and in academic or other institutional environments. Topics include diversity, gender equality, and Abrahamic religions. For religious officials, church leaders, psychologists, sociologists, professionals, researchers, academicians, and students.
