Brock Turner had been sentenced to just six months in county jail after he was found sexually assaulting "Emily Doe" on Stanford's campus. Her victim impact statement was posted on BuzzFeed, where it instantly went viral, 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. Now Miller reclaims her identity to tell her story of trauma, transcendence, and the power of words. She tells of her struggles with isolation and shame during the aftermath and the trial, reveals the oppression victims face in even the best-case scenarios, and illuminates a culture biased to protect perpetrators. --… (lisätietoja)

Chanel Miller, known to some as Chanel Doe or Emily Doe is the woman who stood up against Brock Turner in a highly publicized sexual assault case from 2015. She wrote a heartbreaking account of her life during and after the assault and trial. Miller writes about the double standards women have to face every day as they try to live their lives and how things have changed as a result of the Trump presidency. I think this book is a must read for anybody but especially for women. I’m mainly writing this review to share two of the many powerful passages found in the book.

p. 23 — “I didn’t know that money could make cell doors swing open. I didn’t know that if a woman was drunk when the violence occurred, she wouldn’t be taken seriously. I didn’t know if he was drunk when the violence occurred, people would offer him sympathy. I didn’t know that my loss of memory would become his opportunity. I didn’t know that being a victim was synonymous with not being believed.

p. 278 “We live in a time where it has become difficult to distinguish between the President’s words and that of a nineteen-year old assailant.

Society gives women the near impossible task of separating harmlessness from danger, the foresight of knowing what some men are capable of. when we call out assault when we hear it, Trump says, I don’t think you understand. Just words. You are overreacting, overly offended, hysterical, rude, relax!!! So we dismiss threatening statements and warning signs, apologizing for our paranoia. We go into a party or meeting thinking it’s just a party or a meeting. but when we are taken advantage of, and come crawling back damaged, they say, How could you be so naive, you failed to detect danger, let your guard down, what did you think would happen? Trump made it clear the game is rigged, the rules keep changing. It doesn’t matter what you think is assault, because in the end, he decides.”

The book is hard to read but so so important.

Bravery and courage are a few of the words I can think of after reading this memoir. By writing this, Chanel is standing up not only for herself but also for women who don't have the ability to have a voice, and because of this, their thoughts and feelings are being projected into society.
Anger and resentment are a few of the emotions I felt after reading this novel. Anger at the way that Chanel was viewed in society in the words of the law, the law makers and some law abiders. Resentment in the sense of the overwhelming feeling that almost every woman has a story, and its amazing how many women are able be silenced by society and some of its views. "We suffer from society's shallow understanding..... Openness should be embraced." This to me is one of the most powerful sentences within the memoir. It illustrates that in some cases, society is shallow for we fear the unknown and have a tendency to gravitate toward simplicity. It's too easy to ignore that which we do not understand, but its hard to understand that which we fear.
I thought that Chanel wrote this memoir beautifully, not only was it from the heart, but was so professionally written and explored every detail of her unfortunate circumstance. I do believe that every woman should read this book, if you didn't think you had a voice and that no one cared about what happened to you, this will not only erase that uneasy feeling, but it will help you believe in yourself again, and have confidence in yourself. "How many of us have been made to feel humiliated, melodramatic, instead of brilliant, brave." This sentence touched me on so many levels, females have always been too emotional, and too melodramatic when the reality is we really just project our feelings on a silver platter for all to see, rather than hold them in.
I believe after reading this memoir, that "a small amount of light, a small amount of knowing you can't be silenced..." was definitely realized. This memoir is an empowering one, and one that if I ever have a child, male or female, will most certainly be reading.
This book took courage, sacrifice and time to write, but most importantly, it took love, the love of oneself and the knowingly love of other people to not want them to go through the same thing that Chanel did. I only wonder in awe how many other women could write almost the same memoir in their lives, and how many women can relate. But hopefully because of this book, and as illustrated the "Me too" movement, women are beginning to gather up their courage and express their own stories.
"To girls everywhere, I am with you. Thank you." No thank you Chanel.

This book is a triumph. Chanel's story is harrowing but her grief and hardships are so powerfully written. She uses her voice to redefine what it means to be a victim of sexual assault and to call out how victims are treated by the legal system and society at large. Her victim statement is incredible. If you are sensitive to this topic skip this book, but otherwise it is a must-read. ( )

Chanel's voice is authentic, strong, and eloquent. There are many nuggets of wisdom that can be gleamed from her story. ( )

Readers read the trauma of sexual assault and understand the victims hardships and hard-won victories. Such an inspiring and enlightening story. I want to buy this book and read it again! (From Carnegie Library). ( )

Miller is an extraordinary writer: plain, precise and moving. The memoir's sharpest moments focus on her family and their grief over her attack.
