On 5 October 2017, the New York Times published an article by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey that made headlines worldwide and changed forever the way we think about sexual harrassment. 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 legal settlements. By picking their way through a web of secret payouts and nondisclosure agreements, Kantor and Twohey were able to bring to light the existence of allegations that spanned decades.
Nothing could have prepared them for what followed the publication of their story. Within days, women who had suffered in silence for generations began coming forward, trusting reporters to hear them out; within months, hundreds of men would be outed for mistreatment.
With superlative detail, insight and journalistic expertise, Kantor and Twohey 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. They take us for the first time into the very heart of this social shift, reliving what it took to get the story and giving an intimate portrait of the forces that hindered and spurred change.
Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey are prize-winning investigative reporters for the New York Times. For their exposure of sexual harassment and misconduct across industries, they were awarded the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for public service, the George Polk Award for national reporting, a Sydney Award, the LA Press Club's Inaugural Impact Award and the McGill Medal for Journalistic Courage.
