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.… (plus d'informations)

Was it smart to wait so long to read this incredible investigative journalism classic? Maybe. What completely different feelings are evoked by the writers' recounting of the Weinstein crimes vs the Kavanaugh hearings - one big win, one big loss (with worse repercussions). The story of how the NYT writers persistently pursued former Weinstein employees and famous actresses, all petrified to go up against the powerful producer, and more than a few bound by settlements that forbade them from speaking up, is as classic an investigation as Watergate. Now, on to Ronan Farrow. ( )

A compelling story about the breaking of the Harvey Weinstein story and the amount of work it takes to help assault survivors come forward to the press. This is a well-written and sobering read about the responsibilities of the Free press in keeping the powerful accountable and giving voice to the voiceless. ( )

I’ve been trying to think about what to write in this review for hours now and I just don’t know… The absolute anguish I felt reading this is so large I can’t quite put it into words.

Kantor and Twohey are phenomenal journalists, and you can feel the meticulousness of their reporting in every measured word. I really recommend reading this one in tandem with Farrow’s Catch and Kill – they excellently supplement one another, with one crucial difference: Farrow in his book takes a look at NBC and Matt Lauer personally, and Kantor and Twohey cover in detail the Kavanaugh accusation by Dr. Ford. She Said is also poses a lot of very hard-hitting questions about far-reaching consequences, both good and bad, for women who decide to speak out about sexual harassment.

It makes you feel a bit bleak about the state of things, and about how slowly we change as a species, and, you know, about all the sexism, but it does have its heartwarming parts. The last chapter is especially strong. All in all, incredible work. ( )

This isn't the story of Harvey Weinstein's victims or related news, but rather the story of how the story came to be. How the journalists researched and interviewed and corroborated and dealt with the desire to break the story but have it be solid. I'm fascinated by journalism and feminism so this was a no brainer read for me, and it's both thorough and compelling. ( )

An engrossing, disturbing, and timely read, She Said recounts the experiences of two New York Times reporters—Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey—who published a major exposé of film producer Harvey Weinstein's long history of sexual harassment and abuse. I found the details of how journalists piece together a major story like this fascinating, and appreciated the attention Kantor and Twohey gave to the experiences of women and to the systems that conspire to gag them. The second part of the book, focusing on Christine Blasey Ford and the Kavanaugh hearings, is less engaging because Kantor and Twohey were not as involved. There's an inevitable distance there, and I don't think the authors were as blunt as they could have been in underscoring why the two stories played out differently. Harvey Weinstein was finally toppled because his ability to serve up money-generating, Oscar-winning movies was fading; Brett Kavanaugh sits on the Supreme Court of the United States because he has powerful connections and the ability to adjudicate in their favour.
