When New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey published their initial story on the allegations of abuse against Harvey Weinstein, nothing could have prepared them for the chain reaction that followed. A deluge of women came forward to accuse the Hollywood producer of sexual harassment and much worse, and the fallout spread through the entertainment industry and beyond, shaking hundreds of abusers from their powerful perches and sparking a worldwide movement that’s still unfolding.
In “She Said,” Kantor and Twohey’s new tell-all book, the journalists detail the work they did to bring the allegations against Weinstein to light, from interviews with top actresses and former employees, to tracing the webs of shadowy settlements, to the final showdown between Weinstein and the New York Times.
Jodi Kantor is a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist and a Brooklyn resident. Megan Twohey also has a Pulitzer, and decades of experience reporting on powerful abusers. “She Said” is on sale now from Penguin Random House.
