Time's Up in the US has announced that its former president and CEO Lisa Borders, who resigned on February 18, did so after her son was accused of sexual assault in a "private forum".

"Within 24 hours, Lisa made the decision to resign as President and CEO of Time's Up and we agreed it was the right decision for all parties involved," the statement posted to Instagram said.

Borders served in her role for just three months. Her original statement attributed her resignation to "family issues."

Time's Up COO Rebecca Goldman will now serve as interim CEO.

"As Time's Up continues to grow, I am proud of the work I have done to shepherd its continued development," Borders said at the time of her resignation.

"Unfortunately, it is with deep regret that I must resign from Time's Up to address family concerns that require my singular focus. I appreciate the opportunity to support this mission and I hope my efforts will continue to resonate."

"All of our actions were fully guided for our support for survivors," Time's Up's statement continued.

"We respect the rights of all survivors to own their own stories."
