What Is a Matriarchal Society Based on?

Answer

A matriarchal society is based on women having the central roles of political leadership and moral authority. In such societies, the women play the most active and key roles pertaining to the day to day life of the society while the men play a passive role, in contrast to patriarchal societies where men are the leaders. The most popular matriarchal societies are the Mosuo in China, Minangkabau in Indonesia and the Khasi in India.
