Emily and Chanel

In 2015, a young woman was sexually assaulted on the Stanford University campus. The crime (and specifically, the man who committed it) dominated news headlines throughout the trial. For years, the woman who'd been assaulted was known as Emily Doe.

In 2019, Chanel Miller gave up her anonymity with the publication of her powerful memoir, "Know My Name." In this episode, Chanel talks about the time she spent living with two identities — one anonymous but constantly talked about, the other trying to pretend she's the same woman she's always been.
