A spinoff of the #MeToo movement, #ChurchToo gained traction at the end of 2017. The hashtag opened up the conversation about abuse of power in religious settings. Many shared stories of sexual abuse in church settings, including Jules Woodson. Inspired by #MeToo, she wrote a blog post in January 2018 detailing abuse of power and sexual assault by prominent pastor Andy Savage. Savage, who at the time was Woodson's youth pastor, admitted to the encounter and ultimately resigned, and the publication of his upcoming book was canceled. Bill Hybels, head pastor of evangelical megachurch Willow Creek in Illinois, and the entire board of elders resigned in August after multiple allegations of sexual abuse and harassment against Hybels came to light.
