Publisher Description

The instant New York Times bestseller.

"An instant classic of investigative journalism...‘All the President’s Men’ for the Me Too era." — Carlos Lozada, The Washington Post

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters who broke the news of Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment and 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


For many years, reporters had tried to get to the truth about Harvey Weinstein’s treatment of women. Rumors of wrongdoing had long circulated. But in 2017, when Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey began their investigation into the prominent Hollywood producer for the New York Times, his name was still synonymous with power. During months of confidential interviews with top actresses, former Weinstein employees, and other sources, many disturbing and long-buried allegations were unearthed, and a web of onerous secret payouts and nondisclosure agreements was revealed. These shadowy settlements had long been used to hide sexual harassment and abuse, but with a breakthrough reporting technique Kantor and Twohey helped to expose it. But Weinstein had evaded scrutiny in the past, and he was not going down without a fight; he employed a team of high-profile lawyers, private investigators, and other allies to thwart the investigation. When Kantor and Twohey were finally able to convince some sources to go on the record, a dramatic final showdown between Weinstein and the New York Times was set in motion.
 
Nothing could have prepared Kantor and Twohey for what followed the publication of their initial Weinstein story on October 5, 2017. Within days, a veritable Pandora’s box of sexual harassment and abuse was opened. Women all over the world came forward with their own traumatic stories. Over the next twelve months, hundreds of men from every walk of life and industry were outed following allegations of wrongdoing. But did too much change—or not enough? Those questions hung in the air months later as Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court, and Christine Blasey Ford came forward to testify that he had assaulted her decades earlier. Kantor and Twohey, who had unique access to Ford and her team, bring to light the odyssey that led her to come forward, the overwhelming forces that came to bear on her, and what happened after she shared her allegation with the world.
 
In the tradition of great investigative journalism, She Said tells a thrilling story about the power of truth, with shocking new information from hidden sources. Kantor and Twohey describe not only the consequences of their reporting for the #MeToo movement, but the inspiring and affecting journeys of the women who spoke up—for the sake of other women, for future generations, and for themselves.

Should read.

Harvey Weinstein would still be abusing children and young adults today if not for Rose McGowan. She seized an opportunity when an article came up on her computer. When she was a child actress she was abused by Weinstein alone. She had grown into a strong young woman and had a keen understanding of what it was going to take to bring him down. She was willing to do the right thing even if she faced persecution.

The good thing is that Harvey Weinstein is no longer hurting little girls and young ladies and now he is imprisoned for life.

Outstanding

This is what excellence looks and reads like. The thoroughness with which this journalism has been executed, recreated here with expert story-telling and an exhibition of the evidence by which the story is framed, is so illuminating, educational, shocking, and inspirational. It’s a wonderfully narrated story that provides context, history, and emotional insight into the various individuals and instances. The story feels almost tangible in this masterful exposition on the exposés of sexual misconduct by three powerful men, as told by women, through the stories of women. Heartfelt gratitude that Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor published this book, and to the multitudes of women who bravely told their stories.
