If you use the internet – in any capacity – read news online, tweet, comment on forums, you need to watch this.
Monica Lewinski gives a TED talk about the price of shame and it’s brilliant. I wanted to pull out standout quotes but there were so many that I couldn’t choose which one. But from now on I will think about public shaming as a bloodsport, it’s role in generating advertising dollars, and her brilliant quote of ‘ imagine walking a mile in someone else’s headline’.
Please take the 22 minutes to watch, it’s amazing.
I watched this recently and was so moved by her courage. The distance afforded by the media makes it too easy to sit in judgment far from the other person’s humanity. Excellent viewing.
It’s a marvellous talk. Thanks for blogging it, Melissa
