Meet the women who broke the Weinstein story

Variety's cover story: "How New York Times Reporters Broke Hollywood's Biggest Sexual Harassment Story," by senior film and media writer Brent Lang.

Why it matters: "By meticulously chronicling Weinstein's abuses, these reporters have inspired other people to speak out and go public about the cultures of harassment in the workplace."

  • "New York Times investigative reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor deserve a lot of credit for helping to spark this industry-wide reckoning. Their tenacity helped them break the initial Weinstein story and, along with The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow, they've painted a portrait of a serial predator who was able to use his power to prey on female employees and actresses in a methodical fashion."
