Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey - She Said—in conversation with Bob Woodward at Sixth & I
From the Pulitzer-prize winning reporters who broke the news of Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment and abuse, She Said is the thrilling untold story of their investigation and its consequences for the #MeToo movement. On October 5, 2017, the New York Times published an article by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey—and then the world changed. For months Kantor and Twohey had been having confidential discussions with top actresses, former Weinstein employees and other sources, learning of disturbing long-buried allegations, some of which had been covered up by onerous legal settlements. However, nothing could have prepared them for what followed the publication of their Weinstein story. With superlative detail, insight, and journalistic expertise, Kantor and Twohey take us for the first time into the very heart of this social shift, reliving in real-time what it took to get the story and giving an up-close portrait of the forces that hindered and spurred change. They describe the surprising journeys of those who spoke up—for the sake of other women, for future generations, and for themselves—and so changed us all.
