The Stanford Sexual Assault Case Made Chanel Miller “Emily Doe.”

Democracy Now! spends the hour with author Chanel Miller, speaking about her recently published remarkable memoir, 2Know My Name.

The book chronicles how Miller reclaimed her name, her story and her life after being sexually assaulted by Brock Turner, a member of the Stanford University swim team, in 2015.

At the time, she was known as “Emily Doe.” The case gained national prominence when a California judge sentence Turner to just six months in a county jail after he was convicted of three counts of felony sexual assault. He ended up spending only three months locked up.

The sentencing sparked outrage. Voters in California later recalled the judge in the case. During the trial, Miller read a victim impact statement addressed to her assailant. The text of the letter later went viral, being read by millions around the world.
