The City Club Youth Council invited Alex Leslie, Senior Director of Educational Services, Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, Captain James P. McPike, Commander, Bureau of Special Investigations, City of Cleveland, Mae Bennett, Domestic Violence Services Coordinator, Jewish Family Service Association and Rachel Dissell, Reporter, The Plain Dealer, for a panel discussion on the #MeToo movement for their second forum of the year on February 8.

As sexual assault allegations continue to mount, the country is taking notice. As celebrities declare “Time’s Up” at the Golden Globes and TIME magazine announces The Silence Breakers as the 2017 Person of the Year, survivors of sexual assault are finding strength in their collective voice.

Sexual harassment and assault affect all demographics, but the opportunities for support aren't always available for everyone. Today, celebrities are raising millions of dollars for activist groups while watching their perpetrators fall from grace, lose their jobs and disappear from the public eye, and the panel addressed what happens to those women without such social clout.

Here's a look at photos from #MeToo and You: The Rise of a Movement (or, watch the forum here).
