Monica Lewinsky at Temple Emanu-El March 2, 2019 7:30Pm
Join Temple Emanu-El for a special appearance by Monica Lewinsky, noted anti-bullying activist and Vanity Fair contributing editor. Monica takes a hard look at our online culture of humiliation, offers advice on how to overcome bullying, and draws from personal experience. Why you should listen After becoming the focus of the history-changing federal investigation into her private life, Monica Lewinsky found herself, at 24 years old, one of the first targets of a “culture of humiliation”: a now-familiar cycle of media, political and personal harassment – particularly online. Lewinsky survived to reclaim her personal narrative. During a decade of silence she received her Master’s in Social Psychology from the London School of Economics and Political Science. In 2014, Lewinsky returned to the public eye with an acclaimed essay for Vanity Fair, which has been nominated for a National Magazine Award for best Essay Writing, and with a widely viewed speech at Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Summit. What others say “We could all learn a few things from Monica Lewinsky, particularly about ourselves.” — CNN.com, October 21, 2014 Saturday, March 2, 2019 7:30 PM 1701 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach $50 for Temple Emanu-El members. $75 general admission. $200 VIP admission includes preferred seating and Meet and Greet reception with Ms. Lewinsky.
