She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement | Jodi Kantor, Megan Twohey
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 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 top actresses, former Weinstein employees and other sources, learning of disturbing long-buried allegations, some of which had been covered up by onerous legal settlements. The journalists meticulously picked their way through a web of decades-old secret payouts and nondisclosure 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. But nothing could have prepared them for what followed the publication of their Weinstein story. Within days, a veritable Pandora's Box of sexual harassment and abuse was opened, and women who had suffered in silence for generations began coming forward, trusting that the world would understand their stories. Over the next twelve months, hundreds of men from every walk of life and industry 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. With superlative detail, insight, and journalistic expertise, Kantor and Twohey take us for the first time into the very heart of this social shift, reliving in real-time what it took to get the story and giving an up-close portrait of the forces that hindered and spurred change. 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.

I found this book really informative and an interesting look at how an investigation is put together. The fact that it was a page turner reflects well on Jodi & Megan‘s skills at both reporting & storytelling. The end of the book brought tears to my eyes. I applaud all the women who have come forward to share their stories & to help pave the way for future generations. I have my own #MeToo story / a boss who was very sexually explicit👇🏽

Cinfhen With his comments & actions. I never felt “threatened” but his behavior was always inappropriate & disrespectful. Looking back, I realize being young (20) I was “flattered”by the attention when I should have been outraged. I just assumed this was how corporate America works. 4h
TiredLibrarian @Cinfhen I'm in my mid-50s and when I think back to my teens through my 30s, it's amazing how much harrassment I put up with, and was even "flattered" by, too. We were socialized differently, and I'm glad it's changing - hopefully it's better for future generations of girls. 3h

Cinfhen We are probably of same age @TiredLibrarian ( I was born in 1966) and I agree, we were socialized differently. When I would tell my friends what my boss had said or done at the time, no one was outraged or surprised- it was typical almost “normal” behavior. Every friend had a similar experience 🥺 3h
Kalalalatja Things have really started to change in my generation. When I was a teenager, I remember being flattered by really inappropiate behaviour, that would outrage me now. I‘m so happy things are changing, and that books about the courageous women who are changing things exist! 3h
Megabooks @Cinfhen I‘m so sorry, Cindy! 💕 Even starting to work in the late 90s, I was flattered as well. I hope it‘s better for your kids!! 3h
LeahBergen Oh, geez. Yeah, tell me about it (ie; experiences of our age group). A friend and I sat together one evening recently (with a few wines 😉) and outlined all the “sexually inappropriate” things that had happened to just the two of us in our youths. It was shocking in retrospect. 3h
Hooked_on_books Sadly, I suspect most women have a story of harassment. For me it was a man pressing the length of his body against the back of mine on a busy subway train. I was naive enough to think it was by mistake, but since he adjusted to do it again after I moved, I was clued in. He was pretty mad when I put on my large backpack to thwart him. I‘m the one who should have been mad, not him, but I was just kind of bewildered. 2h
Cathythoughts Yes.. there was a lot of inappropriate- bordering- on - abuse behavior that I tolerated back in the day , as it was considered “ normal “ crazy stuff !!! 2h
Cinfhen I know I‘m preaching to the choir @Cathythoughts @LeahBergen @Hooked_on_books I‘m not surprised to hear you‘ve both experienced some sort of harassment as well @Megabooks @Kalalalatja but I definitely think your generation is from a different stock and much more empowered 🙌🏻 13m
Cinfhen I can‘t even count how many times I was rubbed up upon on the subway or crowed buses @Hooked_on_books and never thought of it as sexual harassment but more as a fabric of sleazy NY commuting 11m
Lizpixie I was forced out of a job at 17 because I refused the advances of my “supervisor” He was a total pig. Oh, and there was the one week I lasted at an army disposal store when I was 15 because the owner kept rubbing on me when I was stacking tarpaulins. #MeToo now

I read the Ronan farrow book about the weinstein investigation already, so it was interesting to read about this alternative one. They did their work at the same time, but how their bosses and the media dealt with the different journalists was striking.

rsteve388 I am reading Catch and Kill now and read She Said in 2019 November. I am surprised that both NBC and NYT didn't work together to deal with this large and monumental story. Also I wonder if NBC is kicking it's self for silencing Farrow from sharing this story, cause they could have broken it first.. and didn't. 3d

This is the result of over three years of intensive, journalistic investigation into all the cases in which Weinstein paid off women who had been victims of his horrific, predatory acts. Weinstein, then #metoo, then Kavanaugh.
I finished it today, to beat the rainy weather, curled up on the sofa, warm but rage burning inside me. These two reporters have done some outstanding work.

I could not turn this audiobook off! Excellent account of how the story broke, the women involved, and how they joined together to break this huge story.

Prepare to be mad and shocked at how much money covers up bad *inexcusable!* behavior. (I knew about the story, but not a ton of details.)

The epilogue felt really good to me. I‘m glad I read this, even though it disturbed me. Great book!

Hooked_on_books I‘m waiting for my library hold of this one. It‘s taking forever! I thought Catch and Kill was terrific. And same thing—it‘s amazing what money can do and what people with money feel justified in doing. It‘s so gross. 1w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Two NYT journalists expose the institutional masking of Harvey Weinstein‘s abhorrent behavior. Twohey and Kantor show the journalistic side and the immense difficulties in brining down a powerful predator. This is a good read, but I don‘t think the Blasey Ford bit was needed. And if you‘re going to read just one Weinstein-focused book, Catch and Kill reads easier and is less clunky, but, I do recommend both. McGowan‘s is decent, too.

Kalalalatja I need to listen to Catch and Kill at some point! I‘m so impressed by all the work the journalists put into exposing Weinstein 1w
britt_brooke @Kalalalatja Me, too. Their perseverance and risk-taking is admirable. 1w
CoverToCoverGirl I‘ve read both Brave and Catch And Kill, both were scary and very chilling reads. It‘s difficult to content to digest. I have this one up on deck as my next listen, but not sure if I‘m ready to jump in quite just yet. (edited) 1w
britt_brooke @CoverToCoverGirl It‘s very difficult content. And to think of how long it went on is devastating. A lot of this one - the criminal details, that is - is repetition of what you already know, having read the others. 1w

It‘s interesting that these authors and Ronan Farrow were both investigating/reporting on the Harvey Weinstein case concurrently and then both published books about it within months of each other. I think I‘d have liked to seen it all rolled up unto one book because I felt like I had to be mentally cross referencing. I did enjoy the section of this one on Kavanaugh‘s accuser. I also didn‘t realize how brave journalists have to be.

Hooked_on_books I‘m still waiting on this one from the library but have read the Farrow and I totally agree about the bravery bit. I can‘t believe what he went through and I‘m guessing these women were subject to intimidation, too. People can be so awful to one another. 1mo

“If the story was not shared, nothing would change.” Thanks to a lot of sitting in rush hour/Christmas traffic yesterday, I finished listening to this book today. I read several books about sexual assault in grad school—Against our Will, as well as personal accounts. This was different, & I really enjoyed the insight into how they researched the story & why the women came forward. The portrayal of 3 men who have used their power, then tried to 👇

Scochrane26 victim-stance is classic sex offender behavior. It‘s frustrating that so little has changed (still reading books about rape 20 years later), but I‘m hopeful that women will continue to speak up instead of feeling harassment, sexual abuse, & sexual assault are secrets. In the words of the Handmaid‘s Tale, “Nolite te bastardes carborundorum”. #TBRRead #wintergames #thefilthyanimals @StayCurious @Clwojick #metoo (edited) 1mo

So grateful and impressed by these journalists‘ dedication to telling the story of Harvey Weinstein‘s victims and working so diligently to help them come forwards. Not easy to read, as I was expecting, but I didn‘t come away from it disturbed or depressed like I feared, it just left me in awe of what these women, writers and victims, were prepared to go through for the truth.

I‘m so happy this book excists, even though I hate it have to excist. What Weinstein did, what way too many men continue to do to women is beyond horrifying, and we need to talk about it. Because silence lets the offenders keep harrassing, hurting, raping, violating women. I have more respect for the work journalists put into exposing men like Weinstein. Spaces, where women‘s stories can be told, are needed, and journalists can provide that space.

Those who rose together to begin the culture change that is #MeToo have fought the good fight - I‘m so proud of them. They could not have done it with united fists alone. It took the investigative journalistic intestinal fortitude of Jodi Kantor, her peers, and her investigative competitors (thank you Rowan) to provide the gloves for the knockout. Everyone should read this book.

Theaelizabet Such a good book. I‘m going to read Farrow‘s soon. 2mo
marleed @Theaelizabet Mine was a library loan. But I decided last year to purchase one full price book a quarter from my local indie bookstore in order to support them. My thought - would I donate $100 a year to keep a local bookstore open. Yes, I would. So with that in mind my 4 books are really free ;). And if I purchase this book it‘s double free in support or investigative journalism! 2mo

An extremely well-written account of how the New York Times investigation into Harvey Weinstein came to be. I don‘t read books about journalism very often so don‘t have much to compare it to, but this is definitely one of my top picks of the year. It is detailed and sensitive to survivors. I respect Jodi and Megan‘s tireless work to help bring these systemic and pervasive injustices against women into mainstream consciousness.

Even though I was largely familiar with much of the reporting this book is based upon, I still found it riveting and, even, powerful in places. The lead up to breaking the initial Weinstein story is hair raising, even while knowing the outcome.

4 stars. Two stellar reporters recounting how they exposed the details of Weinstein‘s crimes. Also covers their reporting on Trump and Kavanaigh. She Said and Farrow‘s Catch and Kill make great back-to-back reads. Each focuses on different aspects and characters. Farrow‘s reads like an espionage novel in parts. She Said gives voice to a greater diversity of women and reflects the arduous work great journalism requires. #NFNov @rsteve388 @Clwojick

rsteve388 How do we set it up?.slack? FB messenger? Ideas? 2mo
SamAnne @rsteve388 Slack would probably work the best although perhaps Litsy folks are more familiar with Messenger? I've begun using Slack for my job and like the platform. 2mo
rsteve388 Same for my job! Love slack 2mo
SamAnne @rsteve388 I would help organize. Maybe after #NFNov when maybe more folks have read it. Early December? Or January post festive season! 2mo
rsteve388 January is perfect! Let's do it in January. Bit overwhelmed right now actually. Lol. 2mo

Oh my! The best book I‘ve hated to read this year. It brought up ( again) all that I endured 40 years ago, and how far we need to go. 15🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟#nfnovember

A gripping must-read book that can‘t provide me with pithy “who knew?” Or “fun fact!” Litsy comments to gain me points for #NFNov. Because it it stellar reporting on the crap nearly every woman has dealt with in life, in school, on jobs. It‘s not new news, just well reported confirmation of what many of us have endured. @rsteve388 @Clwojick

SamAnne And yes, I wanted a glass of wine after a 2 hour listen. I‘m listening to this right after finishing Ronan Farrow‘s Catch and Kill. The books are so complementary. I like that She Said makes the point that as bad as these actresses had it, less privileged women working menial jobs have it much worse. And while many women have been inspired by the #metoo movement, many women are still in no-win situations and have little recourse. (edited) 2mo

SamAnne And gosh, I love middle-age. Now I can grab a beer or cocktail at a bar--with my book!!!. I'm not in my 20s, 30s anymore and I'm not getting hit up. Except by other bibliophiles LOL. AM always up for a conversation about books and literature though! 2mo

This is really quite wonderful! Well researched and written, these two reporters have done a great job of exposing this cretin. I only have to put it down on occasion. #nrNovember.

Bookish_B I found the lengths that creep went to to keep everyone from talking unbelievable and disgusting. I‘m reading Catch and Kill now by Ronan Farrow and it is also really good. 2mo
Samplergal @Bookish_B He is disgusting. I started the audiobook of Catch and Kill and had to return it. I have it on my Kindle to finish by reading. Both books are@exceedingly well written and disgusting at the same time. Important books. #JournalistsRock 2mo
