In this room of Elmina castle is were hundreds of women were kept until they were sent through the gate of no refurn. In this room they were tied up with chains. Five or more women were tied on one chain. If one women had to move all of them needed to move. It was dificult for them to move because if one of the women was sick or ill they would all struggle. The women were starved and sexually abused. The higher authority men in charge would choose one of the women like choosing a piece of candy to have sex with them. If the women refuse to they were beaten publicly to produce fear in the other women so they wouldn’t refuse to have sex with the men. If they needed to do their necesities they would all do it in that same room. In this room many of those women died. Being in this room imaging all the horrifying things the women had to go through is dificult but it’s and experience I will never forget.
