NASHVILLE, Tenn. (KRON) – Glamour Magazine released its “Women of the Year” issue Tuesday and one of them is Emily Doe in the Brock Turner case.

Doe wrote the essay about Brock Turner sexually assaulting her and it went viral.

The woman leading the effort to recall Judge Aaron Persky will represent Doe at the Glamour Magazine event on November 14.

Persky recall campaign chair Michelle Dauber says the Doe’s essay has inspired others to come forward about their own sexual assaults.

“Emily Doe’s impact has been significant and felt nationwide by women and men,” Dauber said in a statement. “From the beginning, I was told I was a best case scenario.”

Turner served three months in jail and is now living in his home state of Ohio.

Emily Doe wrote an essay in the Glamour magazine issue.

It is her first one since writing the 12-page essay detailing what Brock Turner did to her.

Doe talks about Brock Turner’s three-month jail sentence in the essay.

“When Judge Aaron Persky mutes the word justice, when Brock Turner serves one month for every felony, we go nowhere,” Doe said. “When we all make it a priority to avoid harming or violating another human being, and when we hold accountable those who do, when the campaign to recall this judge declares that survivors deserve better, then we are going somewhere.”
