Investigative Reporter, The New York Times

Megan Twohey

Megan Twohey is a prize-winning investigative reporter for The New York Times who has focused much of her attention on the treatment of women and children. In 2017, she and Jodi Kantor broke the story of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of alleged abuse toward women, helping to ignite a global reckoning on sexual harassment. The investigation received the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service and the George Polk Award for national reporting and won other national prizes. The previous year, during the 2016 presidential race, Twohey told the stories of women who accused Donald J. Trump of sexual misconduct. Twohey also uncovered an underground network where parents gave away adopted children they no longer wanted to strangers they met on the internet. This series, entitled “The Child Exchange,” was a finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting and won other awards. While reporting in Chicago, she exposed how police and prosecutors were shelving DNA evidence collected after sex crimes, robbing victims of the chance for justice. Twohey's other investigations brought about separate legal protections for victims of stalking, domestic violence, and sex-abusing doctors. Photo: Katharina Poblotzki
