美國史丹福大學性侵案
受害者回憶錄

改變她一生的性侵案或許已受到相當大的關注,她寫的聲明稿或許已獲得大肆討論,但這是她的真實身分首次曝光,她是Chanel Miller

 

2015年,23歲的Emily Doe(化名,Doe同中文的無名氏)在一場派對上被Brock Turner性侵,Turner當年20歲,史丹佛大學的游泳健將,Turner一開始並沒有認錯,找來了律師打官司,而輕判Turner六個月的法官Aaron Persky,引起社會強烈抨擊,最後Persky受到連署罷免。

 

2016Emily在法庭上發出了長達7,500字的聲明稿,後續她也將此聲明稿發佈至美國媒體Buzzfeed,當時引起的輿論讓社會無法忽視,許多人從中獲得了勇氣,傾訴自己受性侵的過往。2019年,當時化名為Emily的受害者首次以真實身份Chanel Miller出現。

 

Chanel Miller要說的是受害者要處理的遠比生存下來多很多,她的故事控訴這個偏向犯罪者的文化、讓處於弱勢的人們無法聲張的犯罪刑事系統,更重要的是,記錄了一個勇敢的女性,從痛苦的遭遇中努力前行,活出一個美麗豐富的人生。


"Know My Name is a blistering, beautifully written account of a courageous young woman's struggle to hold a sexual predator accountable. Miller has performed an invaluable service for multitudes of survivors. Stand back, folks: This book is going to give a huge blast of momentum to the #MeToo movement."--Jon Krakauer

The riveting, powerful memoir of the woman whose statement to Brock Turner gave voice to millions of survivors

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.
