Luckily, many denominations treat relations between leaders and worshipers like sexual harassment in the workplace. The Rabbinical Assembly, a group of conservative rabbis, officially states that the "power imbalance between clergy and those to whom the minister makes it clear that sexual contacts in these situations are by definition nonconsensual." In addition, many faiths have clergy go through mandatory training on how to prevent sexual misconduct. But based on the survey, which reveals widespread misconduct, it appears more efforts are needed.
Do these results surprise you? Is there nowhere a woman can go free from sexual advances?
