PublisherProject Monma Research Centre
There is limited economic and statistical data on matrilineal societies, for reasons that are addressed in the conclusion. However, there are four key articles, “Do Women Supply More Public Goods than Men? Preliminary Experimental Evidence from Matrilineal and Patriarchal Societies” by Anderson, et al. (2008), “Gender, Competitiveness, and Socialization at a Young Age: Evidence from a Matrilineal and a Patriarchal Society” by Anderson et al. (2013), “Gender Differences in Risk Attitudes: Field Experiments on The Matrilineal Mosuo and The Patriarchal Yi” by Gong, et al. (2012), and “Gender Differences in The Dictator Experiment: Evidence from The Matrilineal Mosuo And the Patriarchal Yi” by Gong, et al. (2015), that discuss economic aspects of the matrilineal Khasi in India and the Mosuo in China. These articles, and their limitations are explored from a critical feminist perspective to provide additional insights and analyses. Then, the author details the issues with conducting a large-scale data collection on matrilineal societies, and how these issues they might be mitigated
