Jenn Haugh

Updated: Aug 13, 2018



The Philly Inquirer featured Jenn Haugh and her family. They shared their experiences regarding the sex abuse coverup within the Jehovah's Witnesses. I encourage you to read the article if you haven't. A link to her husbands Martin's interview on the John Cedars channel is here. It is an incredibly insightful, in-depth interview following the Philly Inquirer report.


Jenn and I talked about her daughter's case that is now open because of the traction the article got. We discussed how misogyny can play a big part in how cases of sex abuse are mishandled. Women's perspectives and recommendations are needed to fix the situation. Most institutions understand this, but religion is always the last to get the memo because the bibles bad ideas override common sense. Numbers 31:15-18; Deuteronomy 21:10-14; Judges 19:22-26


Our conversation turned to general issues regarding headship and misogyny. We also talked about internalized misogyny and how women in the cult tended to "shoulder check" other women. When stripped of our power, sometimes we unconsciously exert unnecessary power downhill. Even now we can reevaluate how we treat other women. Can we find ways to build each other up even if we don't agree with one another?
