#308 - In Her Words

Pictured above are Jodi Kantor (L) and Megan Twohey (R). These two women reporters began to investigate the sexual predations of Harvey Weinstein "when his name was still synonymous with power." The news story revealing the results of their research is credited with launching the #MeToo movement, and the two reporters received the Pulitizer Prize. Utlimately, Kantor and Twohey wrote a book about their investigation. The book is titled She Said.

On September 8, 2019, The New York Times ran a review of the book. You can see an actual photograph of the authors if you click that link. The picture looks a lot like the drawing. 

On September 19, 2019, The Times did a follow up interview with Kantor and Twohey. A link to that interview is right here. Right at the top of the interview, the authors are quoted as follows:

Women can have far more impact together than separately.

Referring to one of my earlier blog posts ("Unit of Analysis"), what Kantor and Twohey are saying is true for all of us - men, women, and children! Together, we can accomplish almost anything. Individually? Maybe not so much!
