Lisa Borders, chief executive of Time's Up, the celebrity-driven campaign against sexual harassment and assault, resigned suddenly to stand by her son, who faces allegations of sexual misconduct.

The statement said that Borders made the decision to resign "and we agreed it was the right decision for all parties".

The group on Friday issued a statement explaining why Lisa Borders stepped down from the organization that was formed a year ago in response to sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood.

Bowden, who works as a life coach and is a podcast host and photographer, allegedly touched Gellert's genitalia and brushed his erect penis, which she felt underneath his clothing, against her during the session, making her feel "violated".

In a statement late Thursday, Time's Up confirmed the reasoning behind Borders' resignation.

Borders joined the organization that champions gender equality as CEO with great fanfare last October after leaving her position as the president of the WNBA.

"My client vehemently denies that any inappropriate or nonconsensual touching occurred at any time", Jackson told the paper. She had overseen the WNBA league for three seasons, joining in 2016 as its fourth president. All of our actions were fully guided by our support for survivors.

Borders said in a statement Monday: 'As Time's Up continues to grow, I am proud of the work I have done to shepherd its continued development.

Bowden's attorney, Alan Jackson, said there nothing inappropriate happened and showed a text message from the woman saying the massage was "gentle and authentic and loving".

The former Coca-Cola executive said she needed to "address family concerns".

The phrase - "speak my truth" - has become a central creed in the Time's Up and #MeToo movements to empower women.

It aims to improve workplace conditions for all women, and stop sexual harassment. "So, the bad behavior, poor treatment, or the maltreatment of women is something I personally do not wish to tolerate".

In their statement Time's Up emphasizes survivors should "own their own story" and directs survivors to contact their legal defense team if they are experiencing sexual misconduct in the workplace. An attempt by The Chronicle to reach Borders by email for comment bounced back. The group advocates for victims of discrimination, harassment, and abuse.
