The compelling story of the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations and the iconic #Me Too movement told by the journalists who broke the story. Featuring first-hand testimony and detailing how the truth was uncovered, She Said is a gripping, disturbing and inspiring work of non-fiction.
'We were determined, from the start, to give a voice to the voiceless.' - Kantor and Twohey
On October 5, 2017, the New York Times published an article by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey that helped change the world. For months Kantor and Twohey had been having confidential discussions with top actresses, former Weinstein employees and other sources, learning of disturbing, long-buried allegations.
The journalists meticulously picked their way through a web of decades-old secret payouts and non-disclosure agreements, pressed some of the most famous women in the world - and some unknown ones - to risk going on the record, and faced down Weinstein, his team of high-priced defenders, and even his private investigators.
In She Said, Kantor and Twohey relive in real-time what it took to break the story and give an up-close portrait of the forces they were up against. They describe the experiences of the women who spoke up - for the sake of other women, for future generations, and for themselves. Their stories have never been told in this way before.

'For decades Hollywood has whispered about Harvey Weinstein. Journalists sniffed around, but none ever could - or, perhaps, would - bring one of the industry's darkest and longest-kept secrets to light. Until Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey delivered a chilling expose ... It sent shockwaves.' - Marie Claire
'It's not often that you can pinpoint the beginning of such a momentous cultural shift, but in this case you can draw a pretty clear line to the stories by Meghan Twohey and Jodi Kantor.' - Glamour
