Motivated by the #MeToo movement, a community panel discussed the availability of resources in Montana to assist victims of sexual assault and harassment, how the assault and harassment affects the victims and their families, and the reasons why victims do not report the incidents. Continued public awareness with information sharing and storytelling is intended to end destructive behavior.
"Nearly 100 years ago, founding member, Marian de Forest dreamed of an organization that would bring together women in executive positions and help them reach their rightful places in the professions that rarely had women leaders. Since the creation of Zonta International in 1919, our members have dedicated the last century to empowering women, both in and outside of Zonta. To celebrate these achievements, Zontians around the globe will take part in a two-year celebration to honor the past while heralding the future."
