KNOW MY NAME: CHANEL MILLER
One of the most powerful, brave and beautifully written books of 2019, the New York Times bestselling Know My Name is the memoir of Chanel Miller (Chinese name Zhang Xiao Xia). Previously publically known only as Emily Doe, Miller is the woman sexually assaulted on the campus of Stanford University, whose victim-impact-statement went viral via Buzzfeed. Her case sparked a nation-wide discussion in the US about the treatment of sexual assault victims by both colleges and the court system; The Washington Post called the memoir, a gut punch which implores society “to challenge and question the systems that aren’t working”. Miller, who was named an influential person of 2019 by Time magazine, outs herself to take control of her own story and deliver an account of trauma, resilience, and empowerment. In conversation with Charlotte Graham-McLay.
