"The Land Where Women Rule" China's Lugu Lake--last matriarchy. (thank you, Kind of Blue)

(my thanks to DU'er Kind of Blue for making me aware of this wonderful video)


China's one-child policy led to millions of female infanticides—except in a lush valley known as the “Land Where Women Rule.” Located in the foothills of the Himalayas, Lugu Lake is home to China’s Mosuo matriarchy. The region's 40,000 denizens have come up with a unique own family structure that puts women in charge. The Mosuo's “walking marriages”—in which women can have as many boyfriends as they want throughout their lifetime—replace traditional monogamy and inheritance passes from mother to daughter.
