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. --… (mais)

Eye opening on the process of rape trial. Heartbreaking.
Some parts a bit choppy written ( )

This is an American masterpiece and frankly should be required reading for every citizen of the country. Chanel Miller, thank you for seeing me, and for seeing all of the persons who were wounded by others. ( )

One of the most powerful and honest books I’ve read in a long time. ( )

A very hard book to read. Chanel Miller was the 2015 victim of a sexual assault/rape by a Stanford University swimmer. This book is a brave and honest retelling of how she was further violated by a judicial system, which found him guilty, but a lenient judge sentenced him to only three months in jail, rather than the much longer prison sentence mandated by guidelines. (Note: the judge was deservedly recalled by voters.)

Victims cannot be mistreated by a system, which is designed and obligated to protect them, and Chanel goes through the many ways in which she was not supported. Her victim impact statement at the end is the best writing in the book; however, hearing over and over and over again about the extent of the damages she suffered was really too much for me. She has my respect and empathy for standing up and her inner strength. A special shout-out to the Swedes, who "saved" her and subdued Brock Turner. ( )

This book is about the author's trauma and recovery from being raped by Brock Turner at Stanford University. Her case became known worldwide for the victim impact statement she read in court and the shockingly light sentence Turner was given. She narrates the audiobook, and you can hear the pain she still carries when she recites her impact statement in the last chapter.

Biggest surprises and takeaways:

1. Miller had a hard time telling her parents that the victim in the widely publicized rape case was her. She didn't want them to suffer.

2. There is a huge backlog of rape kits awaiting analysis. Some actually grow mold.

3. When the case against a rape suspect is strong, the suspect will do everything possible to make the act look consensual. He will attack the victim ruthlessly and relentlessly to make her appear unreliable. Turner's defense attorney asked Miller to confirm a distorted version of the record, dulled the truth by asking a litany of trivial questions, made clownish facial reactions to Miller's answers, and frequently objected and interrupted in order to discourage Miller from answering questions. For Miller, it was like being assaulted a second time. Nevertheless, in the end, the defense attorney gave a shoddy closing argument that the prosecutor effortlessly impeached.

4. The court and the media treated Turner's potential as more noteworthy than Miller's pain.

5. Why is the burden always placed on the woman to signal in every way imaginable that she's not interested, rather than on men to leave her alone? What are all the things a woman must do throughout her life to ensure that if a man rapes her, then none of those things will be interpreted as proof that the act was consensual? It is impossible for women to live under the level of self-scrutiny that society demands of them.

6. We all know it's wrong to say a victim shouldn't have drunk so much or dressed so revealingly. Not only is that victim-blaming, it also ignores that the rapist would have simply raped someone else.

7. When a victim appears "strong," that doesn't mean she wasn't badly hurt. And if she appears enraged, that doesn't mean she's crazy; it means she's finally taking her own side and learning how to fight back.

8. Many people are victims when one person is raped. On the victim's side, there are the family, friends, and friends of friends. Same as on the rapist's side, including those who twistedly decide the rapist was the victim, becoming demented new advocates of rape culture.

9. As alone and hurt as a victim may feel, she needs to let her loved ones try to help her. Conversely, her loved ones need to realize that the victim may need time alone and away from everyone.

10. The prosecutor asked for 6 years, but Turner only received 6 months, which were reduced to 3 for good behavior. This sentence was so light that it felt like he was tossing out the jury's guilty verdict. Judge Aaron Persky's reasons included drunkenness, youth, lack of weapons and priors (though Turner had run-ins with the law before), no monetary loss by the victim (ignoring the costs of therapy and missed work), no abuse of power, adverse collateral consequences to Turner's community that would be caused by a longer sentence, the media attention, the fact that Turner said "sorry" (though without actually accepting culpability), and the idea that a "20-minute" mistake should not ruin Turner's life (never mind the victim's years of coping, and suffering).

11. As paltry as the justice was here, it was a far deal more than the zero justice most victims get.

12. During the campaign to recall Judge Persky, his attorney, Jim McManis, said Miller had not been attacked and that her victim impact statement could not have been written by her because it was too eloquent.

13. The most healing words Miller heard were "It's OK to not to be OK. It's OK to fall apart, because that's what happens when you are broken."

I see a parallel between this book and Isabel Wilkerson's Caste. The author of Caste points out how rape was used to enforce caste divisions between whites and blacks. From Caste and Know My Name, I extrapolate that rape is also used to enforce superiority of the male caste over the female caste. The reason rape is so common, and so rarely punished, is because our society relies on rape to keep men in power over women.

This is one of the most important and affecting books I've ever read. I think it should be read by everyone, especially high schoolers. It's a good lesson on how to treat and respect people, how to help victims, and how to be resilient enough to turn a tragedy into a victory. It's a warning that our society does not treat men and women equally, and that if a woman gets drunk, a predator could take advantage of her and claim she was at fault. And our justice system may side with the predator. ( )

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