"A matriarchy is a society in which females, especially mothers, have the central roles of political leadership, moral authority, and control of property. It is also sometimes called a gynocracy, a gynecocracy or a gynocentric society. The male equivalent is a patriarchy.”
So Mens Rights Activists who go on about the ‘matriarchy’? Yeah, it doesn’t even exist anywhere in the world.
Wiki also says:
“ Most anthropologists hold that there are no known societies that are unambiguously matriarchal, but possible exceptions include the Iroquois, in whose society mothers exercise central moral and political roles.”
There is ONE GROUP OF NATIVE AMERICAN PEOPLE, out of EVERYWHERE IN THE WHOLE WORLD, where matriarchy MAY be considered a thing, but it still it isn’t women in positions of power, it is women as the centre of the family and names being passed down through the woman’s side of the family etc.
Now come at me with “Wikipedia isn’t a reliable source!”, but you know what? You’ll find the same information anywhere else. Seriously, do a google search for Matriarchy. Do more intense research on matriarchy. You’ll find the same shit.
Matriarchy doesn’t exist ANYWHERE in the world. Not today and not in the past. So stick your Mens Rights Activism up your arse and stop yelling about ‘the matriarchy’ to us, because matriarchy isn’t working as a system ANYWHERE.
