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

by Chanel Miller - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241428290 | ISBN 10: 0241428297

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.
