Book of the Month


“We really felt like we couldn’t stop,” said New York Times journalist Megan Twohey, who, along with Jodi Kantor, exposed Harvey Weinstein as a sexual predator in their 2017 Pulitzer Prize–winning reporting. “We wanted to push into the year that followed as the MeToo movement took off in earnest and things got more complicated.” And that is exactly what they did in their new book, She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story that Helped Ignite a Movement.

She Said gives startling details into the depth of Weinstein’s sexual harassment web; a behind-the-scenes view into Twohey and Kantor’s reporting process; how Christine Blasey Ford became an unwitting hero of the MeToo movement; and how, two years on, the lives of the women who spoke out against Weinstein (and others) have changed.
