Investigative Reporter, The New York Times

Jodi Kantor

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 Harvey Weinstein’s decades of sexual abuse allegations. 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. For six years, Kantor wrote about Barack and Michelle Obama, delving into their ideas, biographies, family, marriage, faith, and approach to the White House, and covering the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns. 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. Writing in the New York Review of Books, Ezra Klein said, “Jodi Kantor’s The Obamas is among the very best books on this White House.”
