Types[edit]

Forced Marriage[edit]

The second last sentence in this section has a minor typo where 'place' should appear as 'places'. Since I'm not a registered user and since the article is locked, I cannot do this edit myself. But if someone comes along who has the proper permissions, it would be much appreciated if you could make this minor edit.

Current sentence: Marriage by abduction occurs in many place in the world today, with a national average of 69% of marriages in Ethiopia being through abduction.

Revised sentence: Marriage by abduction occurs in many places in the world today, with a national average of 69% of marriages in Ethiopia being through abduction.

Devşirme system and slavery[edit]

Devşirme system is a forced assimilation system, as explained in the wikipedia article. They are two different concepts, the people who were undergone devşirme process could be the architects or army generals. They are not same thing. Please try to give some other examples for Ottomans if you are willing to mention the slavery in Turkey.

How widespread is Ritual servitude[edit]

Hi. The page Ritual servitude does not enjoy much visibility, so I discussing here a concern that I have with it. The way the opening goes and throughout, it creates the impression that this is a widespread phenomenon, whereas I don't think it is. The only reference to numbers is in this section, which speaks of 2000 freed/ rescued in Ghana. I almost deleted the section, as it is 80% a duplication of materail aready used in the lede and elesewhere, then I saw the figure and so for now it is useful. Could I hear from others who are familiar with the terrain? Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 22:25, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

To to go withs[edit]

Wikipedia has a social science/empathy problem with slaves in fiction; although being a slave is considered defining enough, owning or trading in slaves is not. Bullets and Bracelets (talk) 05:36, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
