About Jodi Kantor

2017 was a watershed year for the fight against sexual harassment. That’s due to the many brave women who came forward, and also to the journalists who gave them a platform to make their voices heard.

Jodi’s 60K+ Twitter fans watched as her article created a tidal wave of blowback against Weinstein, with countless other powerful abusers pulled into the undertow.
