Publisher's Summary

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 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. 

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.

Must read.

Wow, as a woman I am mortified, horrified, empowered and filled with immense pride to read this. Megan and Jodi are extraordinary women, the world is so much better having had them expose this so accurately.

Bravery on show

Loved this comprehensive account of the investigation and ultimate exposure of a predator. If ever there was an example of the standard you walk past being the standard you accept, this is it. That this man wasn’t stopped for 30+ years is a disgrace. Thank you to the authors for their tenacity and hard work.

Fantastic, thorough, exemplary

Fantastic. Speechless. A historic book to leverage against any backlash for the #metoo movement. Beautiful writing and narration. Brava.

OHHHH MY GOD - YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS!!

Hands down the best audible I've listened to in the past year. Absolute gripper - you truly get a behind the scenes look into all the work and investigative journalism that went into breaking the Trump, Harvey Weinstein and Kavanaugh sexual assault scandals. Amazing work by Jodi and Megan [Note: will leave you angry, towards cis-white straight men in positions of power]

Amazing

I thought this would be interesting, but it blew me away. The story of how the emotional and inspirational stories of women came to be public knowledge was told so well and delivered so perfectly that I couldn’t stop listening.

An incredibly important read.

The realisation of how difficult it is to prove sexual misconduct in a patriarchal world was absolutely harrowing. Jodi and Megan's expose was phenomenal, and gave many women the opportunity, and the power of solidarity, to force their assaulters to answer for their crimes. A truly wonderful read.

A must read

I have loved this book. I have been in tears. Incensed, cheering along the people and asking myself as woman what do I need to do to stop harassment taking place where I work and shop and gather. The courage of the victim/survivors and journalists is a powerful movement.

Devastating reveal of ally fail

Many, many of us followed the story. What was horrific to me was how badly let down women are by the leaders and public faces - especially lawyers- in this strive for better situation and clarity over consent prosecution.

5 stars!

Jodi and Megan should be remembered forever for their tireless pursuit of the truth. This is investigative journalism at its finest. The strength of all the women who came forward to tell their stories will be remembered by us all. They have changed things for the better.

Essential listening

Understanding the process of how this came to light is so vital to the plight of those impacted by the non-consensual and horrific behaviour of others. Thank you to everyone involved in bringing this out into the public domain and I hope there is some peace for all that have been affected.
