Monica Lewinsky talks about the #MeToo movement, 20 years after her scandal






- She met Ken Starr, in 2017, the prosecutor in her case, who apparently bullied her through the trial and made her life a "living hell." She mentions that she found his current behaviour creepy,  and she, also, introduces him to her family in hopes he will apologize for how he treated her and her family 20 years ago. He does not.
- She was diagnosed with PTSD because she was publically shamed and ostracised.
- The scandal was big due to the internet, anonymous sources would post rumours that were untrue which meant that it would often be reported as fact. (Fake news)
- In 1998, after the scandal happened, she felt alone. She feels that "isolation" is a tool used to oppress and says it's inspiring that the #MeToo movement allows people to have a support network.
- She says she doesn't know where she fits into the #MeToo movement because she's still processing.
- For years, she has maintained that the relationship was consensual but now she's not sure.
- She hopes all women that have suffered assault can get the help they need but understands that only the privileged can.
