Monica Lewinsky? Monica Lewinsky. Twenty years on, it’s still impossible not to hear that name without seeing the beret. Without thinking about … well, things that are probably best talked about outside of a professional setting. And that’s the point. How, in this day and age, does one get one’s name back? How does one get society to move on? If you haven’t kept up with Lewinsky’s story arc, make sure to read her piece in Vanity Fair before her opening keynote on Tuesday, to be followed by Jon Ronson, who’s studied the very phenomenon of online shaming for which Lewinsky, unfortunately, served as test case.
