New York Times journalists Kantor and Twohey broke the story of influential Hollywood media mogul Harvey Weinstein’s pattern of inappropriate sexual behavior, abuse, and cover-ups that dated back to the 1990s. After months of investigation, Kantor and Twohey published the story and exposed his predatory behavior. Following publication, Weinstein was criminally charged, and the story led to even more powerful men being held accountable for their sexual misbehavior. The story mobilized women around the world to share their own stories about sexual abuse and launched the start of the #MeToo movement.
