A Female Slaving Zone? Historical Constructions of the Traffic in Asian Women

Chapter


Abstract


  • The question as to why some regions in the world became known to slave traders as a source of female slaves in particular is one that has not often been considered by historians. Were there areas from which women were more likely to be taken as slaves then men? If we postulate the concept of a 'slaving zone' for women, then we would need to consider what factors might have influenced this phenomenon.
