Jodi Kantor is a prize-winning investigative reporter and best-selling author whose work has revealed hidden truths about power, gender, technology, politics and culture.
In October 2017, she 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, journalism’s highest award. They also received or shared in numerous other honors, including a George Polk award and being named to Time magazine list of 100 most influential people of the year.
“She Said,” Kantor and Twohey’s book recounting the Weinstein investigation, was called “an instant classic of investigative journalism” by the Washington Post and one of the best books of 2019 by the New York Public Library, NPR, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time, and many other publications.
Before then, Ms. Kantor’s article about the havoc caused by automated scheduling systems in Starbucks workers’ lives spurred changes at the company and helped spark a national fair-scheduling movement. After she and David Streitfeld investigated punishing practices at Amazon’s corporate headquarters, the company changed its human resources policies, introducing paternity leave and eliminating its employee ranking system. Ms. Kantor’s report on working mothers and breastfeeding inspired two readers to create the first free-standing lactation suites for nursing mothers, now available in hundreds of airports and stadiums.
For six years, Ms. Kantor wrote about Barack and Michelle Obama. Ms. Kantor’s best-selling book "The Obamas," about their behind-the-scenes adjustment to the jobs of president and first lady, was published in 2012. Ms. Kantor, a contributor to "CBS This Morning," lives in Brooklyn with her husband, Ron Lieber, and their two daughters.
