Lambeth Palace facing questions about accusations of abuse of woman in Church of England


Since accusations of sexual harassment and worse against the film producer Harvey Weinstein were revealed, many people from other industries have come forward with their own experiences – in part, fuelled by the Me Too campaign on social media, a hashtag created to invite others to share their experiences in the wake of the Weinstein scandal. One of those who used the hashtag is Jayne Ozanne, a founding member of the Archbishops’ Council and a senior lay member of the General Synod. Tonight she tells us exclusively why she, too, is a Me Too. She has told us that she was raped by a priest in the 1990s and claims a bishop advised her not to report the attack. A warning: this report contains details of a sexual nature.
