Kantor and fellow reporter Megan Twohey broke the Weinstein story in October 2017 in The New York Times. Their work has played a significant role in shifting attitudes and spurring new laws, policies, and standards of accountability around the globe. Together with a team of colleagues who revealed harassment across industries, they were awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. Kantor and Twohey also received a George Polk Award, the McGill Medal for Journalistic Courage from the University of Georgia, and honors from the Los Angeles Press Club and the Canadian Journalism Foundation. They are writing a book on the Weinstein investigation and sexual harassment, forthcoming from Penguin Press.
For six years, Kantor wrote about Barack and Michelle Obama. Her best-selling book, The Obamas, about their behind-the-scenes adjustment to the jobs of president and first lady, was published in 2012.
“An Evening with Jodi Kantor” is sponsored by Hollins’ Distinguished Speakers Fund.
