Monica Lewinsky

Social Activist, Writer, Public Speaker

Monica Lewinsky is a Public Speaker, Writer, contributing editor to Vanity Fair magazine, a founding board member of the Childhood Resilience Foundation and Social Activist in the battle against online harassment—advocating for a safer social media environment. She addresses such topics as survival, resilience, digital reputation and equality in both her public speaking and writing. Lewinsky became known to the public in 1998, when it was revealed as part of a federal investigation that she had had an intimate relationship with then President Bill Clinton. Lewinsky is looking for ways to use her experiences to help transform the culture of shame as well as to let people who suffer at the hands of humiliation know that they are less alone.
