Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl is a book
that was published in 1861 by Harriet Jacobs, using the pen name "Linda Brent".
While on one level it chronicles the experiences of Harriet Jacobs as a slave,
and the various humiliations she had to endure in that unhappy state, it also
deals with the particular tortures visited on women at her station. Often in the
book, she will point to a particular punishment that a male slave will endure at
the hands of slave holders, and comment that, although she finds the punishment
brutal in the extreme, it cannot compare to the abuse that a young woman must
face while still on the cusp of girlhood.
