A Transdisciplinary Perspective of Reaffirming Matristic Societies (2021)
Type of ContentJournal Article
PublisherProject Monma Research Centre
In this article, I pull from historical discussions of matristic societies, Marxist feminist discussions of the matriarchy, the work of Marija Gimbutas, and the work of Göettner-Abendroth and Modern Matriarchal Studies to form connections to transnational and decolonial feminism. For the most part, matristic societies function outside of patriarchy and capitalism. Although the social structure and power women attain varies within each society, it would be unfair to label all matristic societies as patriarchal ones with lineage running through the female line. Individuals have more freedom of choice than in many patriarchal societies.
