Know My Name
This powerful memoir tells the story of a survivor who gave voice to millions when she stood up to Brock Turner, a sex offender.

Her struggles with isolation and shame reveal the oppression victims face, and the book challenges our beliefs about what is acceptable. With pain, resilience, and humor, this memoir is a modern classic that will forever change the way we think about sexual assault.
