Time's Up CEO resigns after son accused of sexual misconduct


Lisa Borders, who is also the former president of the Women's National Basketball Association, took the reins of Time's Up in early October. The 61-year-old stepped down after a woman alleged in a Facebook post that her son, Garry "Dijon" Bowden Jr, 36, was sexually inappropriate with her after offering her a "healing session." Celia Gellert told the Los Angeles Times she felt "violated" when, according to her, he touched her genitals, kissed her neck, and brushed his penis against her body during the session. A statement posted by Time's Up on Instagram said "Time's Up unequivocally supports all survivors of sexual abuse and harassment." "We respect the rights of all survivors to own their own stories," it continued, urging others to come forward and contact Time's Up should they need legal assistance.
