WHC's Amram Scholar Series Presents: Jodi Kantor @ Washington Hebrew Congregation

Washington Hebrew Congregation’s Amram Scholar Series is proud to welcome Jodi Kantor.

Jodi Kantor is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter for “The New York Times” and a best-selling author whose work has revealed hidden truths about power, gender, technology, politics, and culture. When she and her colleague Megan Twohey broke the story of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s decades of alleged sexual abuse, told in their newly-released book, “She Said,” they helped spark a movement that exposed systematic abuses across industries.

During Kantor’s program at WHC, she will take us behind the scenes of investigative journalism, revealing how she and her colleagues exposed secrets that have been hidden for decades and gave rise to women’s voices. In exploring the resonance of the Weinstein investigation, she will address several topics, including the misuse of power and position against women, how society responds to the reality many women face, what really creates social progress, and how we can navigate the #MeToo era with fairness.

This event is FREE and open to the public.
