In the last two years, the media has done a thorough job in exploiting the image of Monica Lewinsky. She has been sexualized, objectified and demonized by the media. This paper looks at Monica Lewinsky's exploitation using author John Berger's art depiction as well as headlines from various newspapers and publications. What we find out is that sexism continues to be heavily ingrained all around us. The war on Lewinsky, like the system's war on women, is part of capitalism's interest to keep women segregated to a certain sphere.
