Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey meticulously recount how they broke the Harvey Weinstein story, sparking a national conversation about sexual misconduct that became the #MeToo movement. But She Said isn’t a personal reflection: It’s written in the third person, so whatever frustration, sadness or other emotions the journalists experienced during their dogged and lengthy reporting process are left out of the narrative. Instead, it’s an account of how two women gained the trust of a group of survivors who had every reason never to trust again. That framing is essential to the power of the book, which shines a light not on the accused but on the women brave enough to speak out against him.
