    Borders says in statement Monday, Feb. 18, 2019, that she is stepping aside "with deep regret" due to family issues.

    The gender equality initiative Time's Up says its president and CEO resigned because of sexual misconduct allegations against her son.

    The group on Friday issued a statement explaining why Lisa Borders stepped down from the organization that was formed last year in response to sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood. On Monday, Borders cited family issues but did not elaborate.

    The group says allegations were made against Borders' son in a private forum.

    The Los Angeles Times reports a woman claims Borders' son, Garry Bowden Jr., touched her inappropriately during a "healing session."
