She was known to the world as Emily Doe when she stunned millions with a letter. Brock Turner had been sentenced to just six months in county jail after he was found sexually assaulting her on Stanford's campus. Her victim impact statement was posted on BuzzFeed, where it instantly went viral–viewed by eleven million people within four days, it was translated globally and read on the floor of Congress; it inspired changes in California law and the recall of the judge in the case. Thousands wrote to say that she had given them the courage to share their own experiences of assault for the first time. Now she reclaims her identity to tell her story of trauma, transcendence, and the power of words. It was the perfect case, in many ways–there were eyewitnesses, Turner ran away, physical evidence was immediately secured. But her struggles with isolation and shame during the aftermath and the trial reveal the oppression victims face in even the best-case scenarios. Her story illuminates a culture biased to protect perpetrators, indicts 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. Know My Name will forever transform the way we think about sexual assault, challenging our beliefs about what is acceptable and speaking truth to the tumultuous reality of healing. It also introduces readers to an extraordinary writer, one whose words have already changed our world. Entwining pain, resilience, and humor, this memoir will stand as a modern classic.

@ Olala 女孩,你有任何人都夺不走的力量。 @ 喜喜 @ 八个猫 I see you. I hear you. I’m with you. @ UnderTheWater 写得真的太好太好太好了,所有无法用语言表达出来的,在Me-Too时代作为女性/survivor所要承受的心理和生理上的痛苦都被Chanel写出来了 @ 无人知晓 第一次,从第一人称视角,如此真实的体会到女性在遭受性侵后的心理的变化,和美国冗杂的司法体制对被害者的二次伤害。感叹作者用无比细碎的句子描写生活中那些被永远改变了的细节,让读者亲身体会到作者受到的刺痛。”To girls everywhere, I am with you” 感谢作者的勇敢,成为无数女孩们灯塔般的存在!#MeToo @ 痞子笛 #audiobook 斯坦福性侵案受害者的回顾此事对自己的伤害和心路历程!书中提到的有1/4的女性都曾经遇到过性骚扰的数字让人惊愕,想到自己周围认识的女性所遭遇的是又觉得这个数字悲凉的合理!很感谢作者如此有勇气把这本书写出来!也很感谢读书小组推荐并深刻的地讨论了本书,不然应该不在我的阅读范围里。虽然听书过程中,因为过于depress,我曾经几次需要听别的书来转换情绪,由作者自己讲述,能听到作者几度… #audiobook 斯坦福性侵案受害者的回顾此事对自己的伤害和心路历程!书中提到的有1/4的女性都曾经遇到过性骚扰的数字让人惊愕,想到自己周围认识的女性所遭遇的是又觉得这个数字悲凉的合理!很感谢作者如此有勇气把这本书写出来!也很感谢读书小组推荐并深刻的地讨论了本书,不然应该不在我的阅读范围里。虽然听书过程中,因为过于depress,我曾经几次需要听别的书来转换情绪,由作者自己讲述,能听到作者几度哽咽,让人唏嘘。时长15时24分 2020年听书时长138时时16分 @ 猹理不思议 看了作者照片,笑得很甜,但是书中大多数是描述痛苦的时刻,虽然痛苦教会人成长,但是也不难想象如果没有这个罪犯,她的善良她的勇气会让她在另一条没有没侵犯过的路上走得好。 @ Joy 也是没想到Audible的版本居然是Chanel亲自读的,那种讲述感非常touching,好几次听得都泪目,Best book from Audible this year。 @ 日子旁见 one hell of a heart wrenching story and it hits too close to home. I enjoyed and not enjoyed the book. 还是很想念driftwood deli的三明治,简直就是湾区各行各业大佬喜欢去的地方。 @ Clay 这本书的存在意义远远超过它的可读性。相信作者一定通过此书,整个事件的过程,给了很多人温暖的力量。也希望每一个经历着痛苦的人相信自己,爱自己,要寻求帮助,也能得到帮助,接受周围的人的爱与关怀。
