Chanel Miller is an American writer and artist based in San Francisco, California and New York City, New York. She first came into the public eye anonymously after she was sexually assaulted on the campus of Stanford University in 2015 by Brock Allen Turner. The victim impact statement she wrote and read at her assailant's sentencing hearing the following year went viral after it was published online by Buzzfeed, and was read 11 million times within four days. Miller was referred to as Emily Doe in court documents and in media reports until September 2019, when she relinquished her anonymity and released her acclaimed memoir Know My Name which won the 2019 National Book Critics Circle Award in the Autobiography category. She is credited with sparking national discussion in the United States about the treatment of sexual assault cases and victims by college campuses and court systems. She is also a public speaker.
