If there’s a model society to oppose the patriarchal values of this world, then it surely has to be the Khasi culture, where women run the family, own property, take of charge of money and business, and can throw their husbands out whenever they want. No wonder the men have set up male rights groups and are desperately fighting for equality!
Perhaps this female orientated lifestyle will inspire us to jump the final hurdle of sexual equality in the West!
Join us on a quest that delves into the structure of family and social hierarchy to find a real-life matriarchy!
