Chanel Miller's story changed our world forever. In 2016 Brock Turner was sentenced to just six months in jail after he was caught sexually assaulting her on Stanford's campus. His light sentencing, and Chanel's victim impact statement, which was read by eleven million people in four days, sparked international outrage and action.

Know My Name is an intimate, profoundly moving memoir that exposes a patriarchal culture biased to protect perpetrators, 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. Entwining pain, resilience, and humour, this breath-taking memoir will stand as a modern classic.

Reviews for Know My Name: The Survivor of the Stanford Sexual Assault Case Tells Her Story

A skilled writer... Miller tells [her story] beautifully, caring enough for her reader to spin golden sentences from her pain * Vogue * In its rare honesty and its small details, KNOW MY NAME is both an open wound and a salve, a quiet cry and the loudest scream...[it] is more than an indictment, though it is a successful and moving one. It is also an outstretched hand, inviting you to fight alongside her * Elle * In a world that asks too many survivors to keep their experiences to themselves and shrink their suffering to preserve someone else's potential, Know My Name stands unapologetically large, asking others to reckon with its author's dazzling, undiminishable presence. To read it, in spite of everything, inspires hope. * Guardian * I can't wait to read it -- Dolly Alderton A searing, beautiful book * Sunday Times * You are a brave soul. You are more than the identity given to you by the media and those in power -- Monica Lewinsky Extraordinary woman turning pain into power. Chanel Miller, it's a privilege to know your name, and to celebrate it -- Thandie Newton Powerful, honest and necessary -- Marian Keyes A beautifully written, powerful, important story. It marks the debut of a gifted young writer. * New York Times *
