Monica Lewinsky receives award for acts of heroism

The Swedish business network Klara K announces Monica Lewinsky winner of the newly founded Penguin Award 2015 at a ceremony in Stockholm 1st December.

With the prestigious Penguin Award the female network Klara K wants to recognize acts of heroism and honor the courage it takes to become a voice of brave heart to motivate and inspire others.

The meaning of the Penguin metaphor is to show how sisterhood comes together in backing up a courageous woman.

To survive the extreme conditions in Antarctic the Emperor Penguins huddle together to conserve heat while incubating their eggs during the dark, cold Antarctic winter.

The Penguin Award is an endorsement and acknowledgement of the risk and hardship a person takes when stepping out in frontline into the cold.


Using her own personal story the Award Winner of Klara K’s prestigious Penguin Award, Monica Lewinsky, gives voice to victims of public shaming and online harassment. Her bravery to step forward and share her own painful experience of shame and harassment from almost two decades ago, raises awareness of the responsibility we all have for the tone of public discourse and fight against hatred and cyberbullying.
