The young woman who was sexually assaulted by former Stanford University student Brock Turner has remained anonymous for years but now has decided to go public with her name.
Long identified by the pseudonym Emily Doe, her real name is Chanel Miller. Miller will appear for her first public interview with 60 Minutes on Sept. 22, CBS News announced Wednesday, in advance of the release of her new memoir, aptly called "Know My Name."
CBS News released photos of the 60 Minutes interview and a short video of her reading a portion of her victim impact statement, which became a rallying cry for survivors of sexual violence before the start of the #MeToo movement.
The 12-page statement went viral across the globe and was read in full in 2016 by members of Congress on the House floor.
Turner was sentenced to six months in Santa Clara County jail after a jury in Palo Alto convicted him of sexually assaulting Miller outside a campus fraternity party at Stanford in 2015. He was released in 2016 after three months and later unsuccessfully tried to appeal his conviction.
The judge who sentenced Turner, Aaron Persky, received fierce public criticism for his ruling and in 2018 was recalled by 60 percent of voters.
Miller is from Palo Alto and graduated from Gunn High School. Her memoir will be released on Sept. 24.
A literary agent for Miller did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
An online description of the book says it will detail her "struggles with isolation and shame during the aftermath and the trial," which "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."
In a previous press release, Viking Books Editor-in-Chief Andrea Schulz said that "Emily Doe's experience illuminates a culture built to protect perpetrators and a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable."
In the book, Doe will "share her experience in emotional, honest and eloquent detail," Schulz said. "Her story continues to be a testament to the power of words to heal and effect change."
According to The New York Times, the cover of "Know My Name," a dark teal background with thin streaks of gold across its surface, takes inspiration from the Japanese art of kintsugi, or repairing broken pottery pieces — but not concealing their cracks — using lacquer and powdered gold.
An online summary for the book identifies Miller as a "writer and artist" who received a bachelor's degree in literature from the College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and currently lives in San Francisco.
