"She was know to the world as Emily Doe when she stunned millions with a letter. Brock Turner had been sentenced to just six months in county jail after he was found sexually assaulting her on Stanford's campus. Her victim impact statement was posted on BuzzFeed, where it instantly went viral--viewed by almost eleven million people within four days, it was translated globally and read on the floor of Congress; it inspired changes in California law and the recall of the judge in the case. Thousands wrote to say that she had given them the courage to share their own experiences of assault for the first time. Now she reclaims her identity to tell her story of trauma, transcendence, and the power of words. It was the perfect case, in many ways--there were eyewitnesses, Turner ran away, physical evidence was immediately secured. But her struggles with isolation and shame during the aftermath and the trial reveal the oppression victims face in even the best-case scenarios. Her story illuminates a culture biased to protect perpetrators, indicts a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable, and, ultimately, shines with the courage required to move through suffering and live a full and beautiful life. "Know My Name" will forever transform the way we think about sexual assault, challenging our beliefs about what is acceptable and speaking truth to the tumultuous reality of healing. It also introduces readers to an extraordinary writer, one whose words have already changed our world. Entwining pain, resilience, and humor, this memoir will stand as a modern classic." -- summary from book jacket.… (mais)

This story is so insanely powerful. There is nothing I can say that puts into words who deep and hard this narrative hit me in my soul. Emily Doe's victim impact speech continues to be such an impactful, meaningful, and powerful piece of writing that continues to sit with me every day. There is simply nothing I can say that conveys all of my feelings. You must read. ( )

Thank you. Thank you for being a voice for us. Sharing the hardest parts, all of it. Thank you for allowing others to slip on our shoes and see what it’s like to go through the emotions, the holds of time, the haunts. Thank you for your bravery and your strength for change.

I wish I could give a 500 star review. Incredibly poignant and important book. I learned so much about the pain of existing as a victim and how we mistreat women. I am so proud of Chanel and privileged to experience her journey alongside her. ( )

Miller is an extraordinary writer: plain, precise and moving. The memoir's sharpest moments focus on her family and their grief over her attack.

When a woman is assaulted, one of the first questions people ask is Did you say no? This question assumes that the answer was always yes, and that it is her job to revoke the agreement.
This book does not have a happy ending. The happy part is there is no ending, because I'll always find a way to keep going.
It's still rape even if you're a fast swimmer.
