She Said : Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement
From the Pulitzer-prize winning reporters who broke the news of Harvey Weinstein's abuse for the New York Times, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, 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 and former Weinstein Company employees, many of whom had been silenced by onerous legal settlements. By meticulously picking their way through a web of decades-old secret payouts and nondisclosure agreements Kantor and Twohey were able to bring to light the existence of this paper trail in addition to the allegations themselves, a radical new journalistic technique, which their colleagues at the New York Times had just employed to break the story of Bill O'Reilly's misconduct. But nothing could have prepared them for what followed the publication of their Weinstein story. Within days, a veritable Pandora's Box of sexual harassment was opened, and women who had suffered in silence for generations began coming forward, trusting reporters to hear them out and to take their stories to the world, just as Kantor and Twohey had for Weinstein's accusers. Over the next twelve months, hundreds of men from every walk of life and industry would be outed for mistreating their colleagues. In time, the upheaval gave way to backlash, which reached a historic crescendo with the allegations against then Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanagh and the heartrending public testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. 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 unmatched bravery of the women who spoke up--for the sake of other women, for future generations, and for themselves--and so let loose a revolution.
