JANE PERLEZ: "A tightly written, easy-to-read drama, the story of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and his decades-long sexual harassment of young women, from famous actresses to his assistants. It took guts, persuasive powers, and amazing journalism by two New York Times reporters to unlock the sordid secrets that launched the #MeToo Movement. It’s all here." '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.
