Chanel Miller, known until now as Emily Doe, is set to release a book titled "Know My Name" this month detailing her experience as the victim of sexual assault by Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner in 2016, per the New York Times.

Background: Miller was intoxicated and unconscious when Turner sexually assaulted her after a fraternity party at Stanford. Turner was found guilty on 3 counts of felony sexual assault and was eligible for up to 14 years in prison, but received a sentence of 6 months and only served 3. Judge Aaron Persky, who has since been recalled by California voters, argued "a prison sentence would have a severe impact" on the 20-year-old Turner.

  • Although Miller's case happened prior to the rise of #MeToo, it sparked a national dialogue about consent and male privilege. Miller's victim impact statement was widely shared, and it detailed the scarring effects that sexual misconduct can have long after the event.
  • Then Gov. Jerry Brown (D-Calif.) signed a bill in response to the case implementing mandatory minimums for sexual assault.

What to watch: The book is set to be released Sept. 24 by Viking. Miller also did her first on-camera interview with 60 minutes, which is set to premiere on Sept. 22.

Why it matters: Because the Constitution gives Congress the power to appropriate federal spending, Trump has limited authority to act unilaterally — and risks a legal challenge if congressional Democrats believe he has overstepped.
