Why Women Need To Pay Attention to Monica Lewinsky

0

As the founder of The Women’s Code, the recent revelation of Monica Lewinsky as “patient zero” in cyberbullying stopped me dead in my tracks. In The Women's Code, all women support each other so ripping one of us apart in public is just not what we do. Yet, what she is saying rubs me and [...] The post Why Women Need To Pay Attention to Monica Lewinsky appeared first on The Women's Code. … [Read more...]
