Monica Lewinsky’s Poignant TED Talk

In a poignant speech at this year’s TED 2015 conference, Monica Lewinsky called for a cultural revolution against cyber-bullying and public shaming. Her speech comes at a time when public scandal is at an all time high—most recently including the leaked Sony emails and nude celebrity photos. Lewinsky points out our “culture of humiliation,” where we’ve built a dangerous cycle by supporting gossip articles. And to those who are facing the public scrutiny that she once did, she urges, “You can insist on a different ending to your story.”
