Monica Lewinsky: Power Words On The Pain Of Public Shaming & Cyber Bullying

Monica Lewinsky shares some powerful words about the horror of bullying and public shaming (particularly cyber and print bullying), and she even quotes my favourite psychman, Carl Rogers. In high school, I had my reputation smeared to hell by a supposed friend, it spread all over the school, and for many months, it was incredibly difficult to deal with – and this was before the internet (as we know it today). I can’t even imagine how much harder it would have been to be faced with those vicious lies online, too. This is a great speech, even though the jokes don’t quite work.
