This chapter introduces the VOTF movement as a reaction to revelations of child sexual abuse in the U.S. Catholic Church. It contextualizes the movement’s emergence with an overview of the scope and historical prevalence of abuse by clergy and its media coverage in the United States. The term “intrainstitutional social movement” (IISM) is defined, emphasizing the book’s focus on movements acting from within bounded institutional spaces.

Keywords:   Voice of the Faithful, sexual abuse, intrainstitutional social movement, media, Catholic Church
