Jodi Kantor is a prize-winning investigative reporter and best-selling author whose work has revealed hidden truths about power, gender, technology, politics and culture. In October of 2017, she and Megan Twohey broke the story of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of sexual abuse allegations. Their work helped ignite the #MeToo movement, shift attitudes, and spur new laws, policies and standards of accountability around the globe. Together with a team of colleagues who exposed harassment across industries, they were awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, journalism’s highest award.
  Megan Twohey is a prize-winning investigative reporter for The New York Times who has focused much of her attention on the treatment of women and children. In 2017, she and Jodi Kantor broke the story of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of alleged abuse towards women, helping to ignite a global reckoning on sexual harassment. The investigation shared in the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service and the George Polk award for national reporting, and won other national prizes. The previous year, during the 2016 presidential race, Twohey told the stories of women who accused Donald J. Trump of groping and other sexual misconduct.
