The woman who survived a high-profile sexual assault will publish a memoir this fall, according to the Guardian.
In 2015, “Emily Doe” was attacked by Stanford University athlete Brock Turner, whose sentence and subsequent early release were widely viewed as inappropriately light.
Outrage over his sentencing, in fact, led to changes in California’s sexual assault laws and a voter recall of the judge who made the ruling.
Just as famous worldwide was Doe’s impact statement, read at the sentencing, and she’ll now expound on the assault, the trial, and recovery.
Her memoir is untitled thus far but set for release in September.
Viking, which will publish it, called it “a singular journey that will change the way we talk about sexual assault forever. Emily Doe will reclaim the story of her sexual assault, expose the arduous nature of the legal system, and emerge as a bold, unifying voice.”
