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 actresses, former Weinstein employees and other sources, learning of disturbing, long-buried allegations.

The journalists meticulously picked their way through a web of secret payouts and nondisclosure agreements, pressed women to risk going on the record, and faced down Weinstein and his team of defenders and private investigators.

Following the story’s publication, women who had suffered in silence for generations began coming forward with their own stories of sexual harassment and abuse, trusting that the world would now believe them. Over the next year, hundreds of men from across industries would be outed for mistreating their colleagues. But did too much change, or not enough? Those questions plunged the two journalists into a new phase of reporting and some of their most startling findings yet.

In She Said, Kantor and Twohey—awarded the Pulitzer Prize for their reporting—share the untold story of their investigation and its consequences for the #MeToo movement. 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. In conversation with Bob Woodward, a journalist, bestselling author, and associate editor at The Washington Post. Book signing to follow.
