Are we "slut shaming" Monica Lewinsky?

"Stop slut-shaming Monica Lewinsky."

That was the headline Wednesday in the Daily Beast.

Lewinsky is facing a barrage of criticism after telling Vanity Fair, she wants to "burn the beret and bury the blue dress."

She also says, "I don't know why this whole story became about oral sex." 

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd is unloading on Lewinsky, writing, "Monica is in danger of exploiting her own exploitation as she dishes about a couple whose erotic lives are of waning interest to the country."

And in the New York Post, Andrea Peyser writes: "Monica Lewinsky should shut up and go away."

The Lewinksy-bashing is coming from mainly female columnists - why are they treating her like a villain?

OutFront, Radio Host Stephanie Miller, CNN Political Analyst John Avlon, and Daily Beast Editor at Large, Lloyd Grove, who covered the Lewinsky scandal.
