Rape and sexual violence have accompanied warfare trture sex every known historical era. Employing female and occasionally male slaves for prostitution was common in the Hellenistic and Torture world. Ample references exist in literature, law, military reports and art.

Koxinga sent Hambroek to Fort Zeelandia demanding he persuade them to surrender or else Hambroek would be killed when he returned. Hambroek returned to the Fort, where two of his other daughters were.

In English-speaking countries in the 19th and early slaces centuries, the phrase "white slavery" was used to refer to sexual enslavement of white women. It was particularly associated with accounts of women enslaved in Middle Eastern haremssuch as the so-called Circassian beauties. Moral panic over the "traffic in women" rose to a peak in England in the s. At the time, "white slavery" was a natural target for defenders of public morality and crusading journalists.

From the beginning of African slavery in the North American colonies, white men took enslaved African women as concubines or occasional mistresses.

Some were sold into brothels sex. Young mixed-race women considered highly desirable would receive a dowry or property as part of an associated settlement negotiated by their mothers with white men.

The fathers would often pay for education of their mixed-race children born of these unions, especially sons, who might be educated in France and enter the army.

Nadia Murad grew up dreaming of owning a beauty salon. The youngest of 11 children in a Yazidi family in northwest Iraq, she took photographs of all the brides in her tiny village, studying their makeup and hair. Her favorite was of a brunette woman with curls piled high atop her head. Murad was captured, enslaved, sold, raped and tortured alongside thousands of her people in an effort to decimate their religion. Murad, 24, managed a miraculous escape and is now a Nobel Peace Prize nominee fighting for freedom and justice for her people.

But three years ago, on Aug. Yazidism is one of the oldest faiths in Mesopotamia, dating back 6, years, and has elements in common with many religions of the Middle East: Zoroastrianism, Islam, Judaism. This belief has given the Yazidi people a reputation among radical Muslims as devil worshipers. As a result, followers, who have no formal holy book of their own, have often been the target of genocidal impulses. Before ISIS, outside powers, including the Ottomans and other radical Islamic sects, had tried to destroy them 73 times, Murad writes in her book.

The local leader told the ISIS commander that they would never convert, believing his people would then be evacuated to a nearby town. Instead, the men of the village were loaded onto trucks, ordered to dig a shallow grave and executed in one afternoon.

The women, still in the schoolyard, could hear the shots just a short distance away. The older women and children were separated from the younger women.

Murad was ripped away from her mother, whom she would never see again. On the way out of town, Murad, who was 21, screamed in an effort to stop one of the soldiers from grabbing her breast each time he walked by her on the bus.

He lit another one and put it out on her stomach. In the dark, crowded room of a home where she and the other women were being held, Murad asked what awaited her; another woman who had been there longer told her to look for the stains on the bathroom wall where others had tried to kill themselves rather than be sold as slaves.

She had never heard of ISIS before they came to her village and had no idea that the group had been planning her fate for a long time. Sitting in a house surrounded by men with guns, the young woman contemplated killing herself. Instead, she made a pact with her two older sisters, Dimal and Adke. And that was that. Murad was registered as a slave — complete with a photo ID that would be dispersed among the fighters if she were to run away — and taken to the home of her new owner, a high-ranking ISIS judge named Hajji Salman.

I did that for them. Hajji Salman told her to shower, put on a dress that came only to her knee — an immodest change from her normal wardrobe — and use hair-removal cream all over her body. Normally [my niece] and I would have been thrilled at the new makeup, which was a brand I recognized and could very rarely afford. We would have stood in front of the bedroom mirror, painting our eyelids different colors, surrounding our eyes with thick lines of kohl, and covering our freckles with foundation.

I put on some pink lipstick and eye makeup — just enough, I hoped, to avoid being beaten. His touch was exaggerated, forceful, meant to hurt me. He humiliated her, spreading honey on his toes and making her lick it off.

She tried anyway. She put on an abaya, the robe-like covering that devout Muslim women wear, and crawled out a window. A guard saw her. The last thing she saw before blacking out was one of the guards placing his glasses on a table before he climbed into her bed. Over the next week, she was passed to six other men who raped and beat her, before being given to one who planned on taking her to Syria. But first he needed to buy her more clothing. Left alone for the first time in two weeks, she impulsively tried the front door.

She walked all evening and into the night. When she arrived at the outskirts of town, the poorer section, she felt slightly calmer. She spied a house that looked vaguely like her own back in Kocho and knocked on the door.

One of the men grabbed her and pulled her into the house. The clan, who despised ISIS, let her stay with them for a few days while they prepared a plan: One of the sons, Nasser, would drive her out of ISIS territory; if anyone asked, he would pretend to be her husband.

The plan worked. She is planning to build a life and a family.
