Early Marilyn Monroe photos are selling for more than $300,000 (http://wapo.st/vUoEzY) which begs the question: What is so captivating about this icon that Americans are still enamored decades after her death? A new movie, My Week With Marilyn, starring Michelle Williams, also reveals that the star's life continues to be researched and admired. Dr. Bonnie Eaker Weil suggests that people still identify with her vulnerability, glamour, beauty and seduction. "Yes, she's an icon," says Dr. Bonnie, "But she also made a name for herself by standing up to movie studios at the time who wanted to only bill her as a sex symbol. She demanded to have her needs met, that people see her as a person not just as a sex symbol."

It's this struggle to be seen for who she is, suggest Dr. Bonnie, that continues to enamor women especially. "Many women can identify with this struggle," she explains. "They want to feel attracted and adored, yes, but perhaps more than that they want to be loved for who they are as a person."

Dr. Bonnie encourages Marilyn's fans to honor her memory by recognizing the ways in which they may still fall into the traps she was fighting against. Dr. Bonnie points out: "People may take loved ones at 'surface value.'" Instead of being content to view people this way, find out how these loved ones need to be loved! What do they need to be seen and to feel valuable? In Marilyn, many people still see a sex symbol but she also stood for more than that - something that women and people today are still trying to stand for.
