(Newser) – The woman who was raped by college swimmer Brock Turner and confronted him in court before his sentencing is writing a memoir, the AP reports. Viking Books announced Wednesday that it would publish the book, currently untitled, by the woman known publicly as Emily Doe. The publisher declined comment on whether she will use her real name. Her memoir is scheduled for Sept. 17. Millions were enraged when Turner, an ex-Stanford University student, was sentenced to just six months in jail in 2016 after being convicted of felony sexual assault.

The judge became the first recalled in California since 1932. Doe read her impact statement in court, telling Turner he had taken away her self-worth and voice, "until today." Her statement, more than 7,000 words, was widely read after it was released to the public. (See what "Emily Doe" wrote about herself as Glamour's "woman of the year.")
