Jill Duggar Dillard is calling it like she sees it.

The former reality star’s family are followers of the Institute in Basic Life Principles (IBLP). The controversial, ultra-conservative Christian organization, founded in 1961 by Bill Gothard, has promoted female submission to male authority and encouraged followers to abide by strict rules that prohibited much of the outside world, placing restrictions on movies, television, music, dancing, dating and more.

Gothard resigned from his IBLP leadership position in 2014 amid sexual harassment and molestation accusations, which he denied, calling them “false accusations” that were aimed at destroying him and the IBLP.

Now that she’s no longer connected to IBLP, Jill tells PEOPLE why she considers the organization she was once long associated with to be a “form of a cult.”
