Each orchestra ticket includes a copy of Kantor & Twohey’s new book: She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement

In October 2017, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey broke the story of decades of sexual abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein. 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. She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement is the untold story behind that investigative reporting, from confidential discussions with top actresses to meticulous research of decades-old secret payouts and nondisclosure agreements.

Bernice Yeung covers labor and employment for ProPublica. Previously, she was a reporter with Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting, where she was a member of the award-winning reporting teams that investigated the sexual assault of immigrant farm workers and night-shift janitors. She is the author of In a Day’s Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence Against America’s Most Vulnerable Workers.
