After all, as Sarah Mathewson, Anti-Slavery International's Africa coordinator, noted in an email to me from nearby Niger, news of this case is bound to deter others being held from trying to escape.

"The majority of women in slavery have children outside of marriage, partly because they are so often raped by their masters, or encouraged into sexual relationships from a young age but denied the right to marry formally," Mathewson wrote.
Mathewson told me she hasn't heard of other cases of women who were liberated from slavery in Mauritania being charged with similar crimes. But in a highly publicized case, a woman in Niger, Hadijatou Mani, successfully sued for her freedom after escaping slavery and initially being sentenced to six months in prison for the crime of bigamy.
I hope for a similar turnabout for Mbeirika Mint M'bareck, whose name roughly means "blessed" but is interpreted as "lucky charm" in the Mauritanian context, according to Mathewson. The naming convention is "very much a way of diminishing and objectifying them," she said.
