Know My Name: A Memoir
After Chanel Miller’s 2015 rape by Stanford U student Brock Turner Miller his her identity. We knew her only as Emily Doe. She endured having Turner define the narrative (her perspective) and a judge who sentenced Turner to a mere six months for three felony convictions. Now Miller has written a luminescent memoir that takes readers into her interior thoughts and the brutal ways systems treat victims of sexual assault. What’s especially beautiful about Miller’s memoir is the way she writes about family, friends, and strangers who rallied to support her and the way she talks about books and writing. Miller owns her story, defines how she will tell it, and offers loving corrective to institutions that must do better. Men, read this book to understand the women you love, most of whom have probably been sexually harassed or abused in ways you may not know. Women, read this book to know there’s a sisterhood of survivors like you.
