Matriarchal societies? For example? Not saying you are wrong. I just have not heard of any and I am a historian. I work with a lot of other historians, archaeologists, anthropologists etc and I have never heard mention of any matriarchal society. So I would be very interested if you could give me an example of a truly matriarchal society.

You’re also right that whether a society is matriarchal or patriarchal is a matter of perspective.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
