Abstract

This article examines a recent judgment of the High Court of Australia, R v. Tang which raises questions about the definition, conceptualisation and language of slavery. The authors argue that by using the language of 'slavery' to describe certain conduct, the court provides a powerful tool to address circumstances that are criminally harmful to women.
