Know My Name

A Memoir

Chanel Miller

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 victim impact statement went viral and inspired changes in California law. Now, she reclaims her identity and shares her story of trauma, transcendence, and the power of words. 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.

Oh here's one more book recommendation before I sign off for now. I've just finished reading Know My Name by Chanel Miller, survivor of sexual assault on Stanford campus & a rape trial that pilloried her. Read it, think about Farooqi case & ongoing trial in #Tejpal case      source
Oh! So GREAT! If you're able, PLEASE read her powerful book.      source
I read this book cover to cover on Saturday & it stunned me: Chanel Miller is such a lushly talented writer, with such beautiful instincts, that she does the nearly impossible by making this book easily surmount its origin point. Hope it’s required reading in HS & colleges      source
"But why are they allowed to touch us until we physically fight them off? Why is the door open until we have to slam it shut?" ~Chanel Miller, Say My Name. A brilliant and heartbreaking book.      source
