Monica Lewinsky on shame (TED Talk)

Monica Lewinsky (TED, 3/20/15); Crystal Quintero, Ashley Wells (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

The price of shame
You did what to her?! Whaddaya got down here?
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously [because of being sexually harassed by my boss, President Bill Clinton].” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, Lewinsky takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.
