Monica Lewinsky is also taking a stand against bullying. The 42 year old Strategic Advisor and Ambassador for Bystander Revolution, announced her new anti-bully campaign via People magazine on Tuesday, September 29.
Lewinsky is partnering with celebrities such as Michael J. Fox, Olivia Wilde, Salma Hayek, Alan Cumming, Lily Collins, Rashida Jones and Jamie Lee Curtis to launch her anti-bully campaign and provide a series of informative messages, as well as tips for victims of bullying on social media. The program, titled Month Of Action, aims to release daily anti-bullying messages all throughout the month of October on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. People who have signed up through the Bystander Revolution website, will also receive the same messages through email and text.
Lewinsky experienced bullying and has suffered for years after the 1998 Clinton scandal. She was a young intern then and was called several nasty names, once news of the scandal broke. In a previous interview, Lewinsky recounted how she lost her dignity and reputation in 1998. She also shared how she even thought of committing suicide then because of all the bullying. It was definitely a trying time for Lewinsky given the negative feedback and criticisms she faced even years after the scandal.
