In honor of #womensmonth we've decided to honor some amazing women who are kicking butts, taking names, while making an impact in their communities, and around the world.⁠

Who is Chanel Miller? She is a survivor, writer, and artist who earned her BA in Literature in 2014 from the University of California, Santa Barbara. In 2015, Miller's life changed as a Stanford student assaulted her. For a few years, Miller hid her identity and the media shamelessly reduced her as her attacker's victim instead of Emily Doe. Miller issued her memoir entitled KNOW MY NAME in 2019 which detailed her sexual assault, the People vs Tuner case, and the aftermath of the case. Miller's memoir highlighted the cruelty of the criminal justice systems for victims of sexual assault.

KNOW MY NAME celebrated many literary achievements as it became a New York Times bestseller, a New York Times Book Review Notable Book, and a National Book Critics Circle Award winner. KNOW MY NAME also won best book of 2019 in Time, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, NPR, and People, and many more. Miller has accomplished so much and did not allow this trauma to hinder her future. Miller is a 2019 Time Next 100 honoree and a 2016 Glamour Woman of the Year honoree as "Emily Doe."
