Monica Lewinsky said that she was uninvited to an event she had already planned to attend because former President Bill Clinton agreed to go.
莫妮卡•莱温斯基说,她没有被邀请参加她已经计划参加的活动,因为前总统比尔•克林顿确定去参加。

"Dear world: please don't invite me to an event (esp. one about social change) and — then after I've accepted — uninvite me because Bill Clinton then decided to attend/was invited," the activist and fashion designer wrote on Twitter Wednesday.
“亲爱的世界:请不要邀请我参加一个活动(特别是关于社会变革的活动),即便——在我接受邀请之后——却撤销了对我的邀请,因为比尔克林顿决定出席/被邀请,”这位活动人士和时尚设计师周三在Twitter上写道。

Although Lewinsky didn't reveal the event in question, HuffPost revealed she was referring to Town & Country magazine's annual philanthropic summit that began on Wednesday morning.
尽管莱温斯基没有挑明是哪一场活动,赫芬顿邮报透露,她指的是周三早上开始的《城市与乡村》杂志年度慈善峰会。

Lewinsky added that the "mag" tried to "ameliorate the situation" by offering her an article.
莱温斯基称该杂志打算在杂志上发表一篇她的文章,以此来弥补她。

Clinton spokesman Angel Urena said he was totally unaware that Lewinsky had ultimately been asked not to attend.
克林顿发言人Angel Urena说,他根本不知道莱温斯基最终被要求不参加。

"President Clinton was invited to address the Town & Country Philanthropy Summit," Urena said on Twitter. "He gladly accepted. Neither he nor his staff knew anything about the invitation or it being rescinded."
Urena在推特上说:“克林顿总统应邀出席了《城市与乡村》杂志慈善峰会。”他高兴地接受了邀请。克林顿本人和他的下属们根本就不知道有关莱温斯基被邀请以及邀请被取消的事情。

Town & Country did not respond to a request for comment.
城市与乡村》杂志并没有回应记者的置评要求。

At the summit, the 42nd President introduced Parkland, Fla. shooting survivor-turned-activist Emma Gonzalez.
在峰会上,第42届主席介绍了佛罗里达州帕克兰的枪击幸存者,如今是活动家的艾玛•冈萨雷斯

Gonzalez has become one of the most recognizable faces in the fight for gun control since the Feb. 14 massacre that killed 17 of her classmates, teachers and faculty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
2月14日马乔里•斯通曼•道格拉斯高中(Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School)发生了一起大屠杀事件,17名冈萨雷斯的同学和教职工遇害身亡,自这以后,冈萨雷斯成为了枪支管制斗争中最知名的人物之一。


莱温斯基在白宫实习期间与克林顿交往甚密

Lewinsky and Clinton engaged in a sexual relationship during the 1990s, when she was a White House intern in her 20s. The affair became public in 1998, and Clinton's denial sparked impeachment proceedings. He was impeached by the House — for lying under oath and obstructing justice — but acquitted in a subsequent Senate trial.
20出头的莱温斯基是一名白宫实习生,20世纪90年代,她与克林顿之间建立了性关系。1998年这件事广为人知,而克林顿对此的否认行为直接导致了白宫对他的弹劾。他被众议院弹劾,因为他在妨碍司法公正的情况下撒谎,但在随后的参议院审判中被判无罪。

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Lewinsky, now 44, wrote an article for Vanity Fair in February in which she said she used to see her affair with the then-President as "a consensual relationship." She said, however, that she recently began to think of it through a "new lens" after countless women and men began coming forward with their varying stories of sexual assault at the hands of powerful men.
今年44岁的莱温斯基(Lewinsky)于今年2月为《名利场》(Vanity Fair)写了一篇文章,称她曾把自己与时任总统的婚外情视为“一种共识关系”。然而,她说,她最近开始通过一个“新视角”来思考这个问题,因为无数的女性和男性开始讲述他们各种被有权势的男人性侵的事情。


"Given my PTSD and my understanding of trauma, it's very likely that my thinking would not necessarily be changing at this time had it not been for the #MeToo movement — not only because of the new lens it has provided but also because of how it has offered new avenues toward the safety that comes from solidarity," she wrote.

她写道:“考虑到我的创伤后应激障碍和我对创伤的理解,要不是因为‘MeToo’运动,我的想法很有可能不会在这个时候发生改变——不仅是因为它提供了新的视角,也因为它为来自团结的安全性提供了新的途径。”

"Now, at 44, I'm beginning (just beginning) to consider the implications of the power differentials that were so vast between a president and a White House intern."
“现在,在44岁的时候,我才开始(刚刚开始)考虑总统和白宫实习生之间巨大的权力差异背后的深意。”
