INCIDENTS IN THE LIFE OF A SLAVE GIRL

"Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl" was one of the first books to address the struggle for freedom by female slaves; explore their struggles with sexual harassment and abuse; and their effort to protect their roles as women and mothers. After being overshadowed by the Civil War, the novel was rediscovered in the late 20th century and since then hasn't been out of print ever. It is one of the seminal books written on the theme of slavery from a woman's point of view and appreciated worldwide academically as well. Excerpt: "Reader be assured this narrative is no fiction. I am aware that some of my adventures may seem incredible; but they are, nevertheless, strictly true. I have not exaggerated the wrongs inflicted by Slavery; on the contrary, my descriptions fall far short of the facts. I have concealed the names of places, and given persons fictitious names. I had no motive for secrecy on my own account, but I deemed it kind and considerate towards others to pursue this course...." Harriet Jacobs (1813–1897) was an African-American writer who was formerly a fugitive slave. To save her family and her own identity from being found out, she used the pseudonym of Linda Brent and wrote secretly during the night.

Harriet Jacobs once said, "Slavery is terrible for men, but it is far more terrible for women". Yes indeed. Men faced many hardships during slavery. They were beaten severely, starved, worked to the point where they couldn't anymore and many more sufferings. On the other hand, women also faced these similar hardships and had to suffer even more. They would have to watch their children being taken away from them and sometimes never see them again. Women had to also
