This month, “Women by the Numbers” takes a look at surprising findings from a program evaluation
analysis about clergy attitudes concerning sexual misconduct. Many denominations and social scientists
have examined sexual misconduct cases involving children; however, this research is specific to adult
victims (mostly women) and perpetrators within The United Methodist Church in the United States.
