Lewinsky became famous after an affair she had with President Clinton got public. Private phone calls between her and the president got published without her consent. In a TED talk she now talks about how she was slutshamed and cyberbullied online to a degree that she almost didn't survive.
In her beautiful speech Lewinsky raises our awareness of how our decisions online can destroy lives, sometimes even ending them. Her speech is inspiring and true. You can feel how this woman is on the verge of crying when she thinks back to her dark 20s. But she stays strong and keeps talking in hope to spare others her experiences.
Here is the full speech:
Cyberbullying is not harmless! It literally kills people. Please be aware of how your words and clicks might affect other people's lives and stand up against bullies online and in real life!
