Monica Lewinsky: The Price of Shame

This TED Talk from Monica Lewinsky has been making the rounds on the internet for the past week week. A friend sent me the link, and initially I thought I wouldn’t be interested, but I found myself completely captivated by Monica’s speech. She is extremely well-spoken and personable while talking about public shaming, scandal, and her infamous affair with then-US President Bill Clinton which made international headlines, saying: “At the age of 22, I fell in love with my boss. At the age of 24, I learned the devastating consequences.” Monica urges viewers to return to the values of compassion and empathy, and touches on the suicide of Tyler Clementi.
