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 towards women, helping to ignite a global reckoning on sexual harassment. The investigation shared in 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 groping and other sexual misconduct.
She uncovered an underground network where parents gave away adopted children they no longer wanted to strangers met on the Internet. Known as private re-homing, the illicit practice took place with no government oversight and at great risk to children. “The Child Exchange” series was a finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting and won other awards. It prompted states to pass new laws to protect children. Two of the main subjects were sent to prison. And Twohey testified before a U.S. Senate committee.
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. In response to her stories, Illinois passed the first state law mandating the testing of every rape kit. Twohey’s other investigations brought about separate legal protections for victims of stalking, domestic violence and sex-abusing doctors.
Twohey is also a contributor to NBC and MSNBC.
Ms. Kantor and Ms. Twohey wrote a New York Times best-selling book on the Weinstein investigation and sexual harassment entitled She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement, released on September 10, 2019 by Penguin Press. It will be adapted into a film by Plan B Entertainment, the makers of Selma and Moonlight.
A native of Evanston, Ill., Twohey lives in Brooklyn with her husband and daughter.
