Slave “Wife” Kept Naked & Chained for 15 Years


Bought fifteen years ago, at the age of 21, from a slave trader for a mere $300 by a 50-year-old farmer, the procured wife’s existence was one on par with the animals with which she shared her outhouse accommodation, kept naked and shackled in filth all year round, freezing in winter and food for insects in summer.

Such is the pitiful tale related by a journalist who was tipped off as to the woman’s plight, and went to investigate.

When the journalist set out to confirm the report, he quickly discovered its accuracy was not in doubt; on arrival he soon found his way to the rude hut in question, and on peering into the crude structure’s empty windows saw the imprisoned “wife” staring vacantly back out.

She had apparently been bought from a slave trader 15 years earlier, and then forced into marrying the farmer under a false name to give her servitude an air of legitimacy.

The farmer’s first act upon acquiring his property was to strip her, and tie her to a heavy stone. Interrogation of the farmer revealed he bound her as she would otherwise destroy things, and that he kept her naked as it was easier to deal with her bodily functions that way.

Kept this way, naked all year round, she apparently only survived by keeping her body warm using the single sheep she was kept with. At times she would faint from the cold, but villagers would set a fire for her, although perhaps for reasons less than sympathetic.

Her existence was also one of toil; the farmer had a number of small fields and had her work these, as well as having her work the fields of other villagers, perhaps explaining their interest in avoiding her freezing to death. She was kept half starved, and forced to beg for her living costs when she was not toiling in the fields.

She could read, at least at first, and, according to the wicked villagers, was young and beautiful, and of sound mind, when first she was brought to the village.

But the shell of a woman before the reporter only gazed vacantly into space, and was heedless of the many times she had been bitten by mosquitoes in the hut; the farmer smiled and said “She don’t take no notice of them”.

Apparently, she has at least one surviving relative in the form of an older brother, who came searching for her in the area, but failed ultimately to find her. The reporter is currently soliciting information as to the full identity of the woman.

Via Heaven. Original Chinese story.

Whilst slavery and other barbarity may be relatively common in backwater rural China, this story seems to exhibit exceptional callousness and cruelty on the part of the owner, to put things mildly. And it happens not in the backward and neglected interior, but in coastal Shandong province, one of the richest and most economically developed areas in China.

    Has anyone noted that she doesn't exactly look starved...or even half starved? This looks like a make to fame or bogus event.

    If it is real......then the farmer himself doesn't appear to be much better off. I think the dog has the best lot, with the fur coat. they didn't say they found the hut out behind the house....only that they found the hut (which may be the house proper).

    Don't beleave everything you read or watch...

    so over 15 years she wasn't impregnated according to the article?

    so no passing villagers had a poke or the actual farmer himself?

    There was a good movie that I saw about a woman sold as a wife to a such a village. Can't recall the name, though.

    `At times she would faint from the cold, but villagers would set a fire for her, although perhaps for reasons less than sympathetic.`

    I think this means the villagers enjoyed seeing someone more degraded than themselves. That's just a guess.

    He just meant to hint at them not wanting their free worker slave to die, as he explained after.
    I think.

    I feel so disturbed after reading this. The villagers are so heartless as well. She's also a human, not a pet dog or sth.. Sigh.. i am so saddened. Poor lady, i wonder if she's free now.

    Avatar wrote the reporter is soliciting information to find out her true identity, which, i suppose, could lead to her freedom...
    Still, unless her identity is confirmed and the woman gets support (maybe from her brother) i doubt someone will bother and invest their time to correct what is probably just another drop in the ocean. Unless proven otherwise, she still is that farmer's legal wife, after all.

    This, with some tweaks, would make an excellent Law and Order episode. I'm serious.

    cause it's raining... the light from the flash hits the rain and bounces it back. sadly, i like going out on my verandah and taking photos of the rain as it falls in front of my pine trees. the resultant pics are quite calming oddly...

    Sad story, and it is even sadder that slavery is still rampant in certain parts of the world. The worst part about all this is how the woman no longer knows how wrong it even is, or how some of them have never known what another life is like, and just accept it as their fate.

    A woman who is tricked, sold and abused in every way possible just to be tied to a rock in the end will probably find it difficult to affirm her freedom to a rough farmer who is mostly a stranger to her and is at the same time the one who bought and abused her...
    It's called "being broken", as Rapelay teaches.

    Ok I'm thoroughly shocked and appalled by this and I didn't even know stuff could still shock me after reading about people keeping little girls in basements as sex slaves etc.

    Why leave out the stories of Japanese pedophiles? I'm sure you there are people who love that shit. You know Japanese men sleeping with underage kids and raping/abusing them right? Think international, think global trade. Why settle just on China and Korea and other lesser Asian nations.

    Talk about the mass amount of suicides that occur in Japan daily, the rape/abuse of children, random stabbings and killings that occur in Japan. That would make it more UCB.

    Don't forget the random sex bars and slasher/snuff films. A leftover from WW2 where Japanese scientists loved to cut up and experiment on Allied soldiers, Chinese, Koreans, Thai, Malaysian and other S.E Asian people. Why leave that out? Where is the fun in that?
