Barb and Joe Anderson

Barbara and Joe (2016)

Barbara Anderson was a member of Jehovah’s Witnesses from 1954 through 1997. She worked at Watchtower’s headquarters in Brooklyn, NY, from 1982 to 1992 where during her last four years there, she researched the movement’s official history (published in 1993) and did research as well as wrote a number of articles for their Awake! magazine. While working in the organization’s Writing Department, Barbara discovered that the Watchtower organization covered up child sexual molestation committed by Jehovah’s Witnesses. Rather than becoming discouraged over this discovery, she became a champion for change. This issue caused her to exit the religion and eventually become an outspoken critic of Jehovah’s Witnesses’ sexual abuse policies that she’s extensively researched.
