Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Patriarchy is a social system in which the males, especially fathers, have central roles of political leadership, moral authority, and property. Many patriarchal societies are also patrilineal, meaning that property and title are inherited by the male lineage. The female equivalent is matriarchy.Historically, patriarchy has manifested itself in the social, legal, political, and economic organization of a range of different cultures. Many argue that patriarchy entails institutions of male privilege and entails female subordination. Patriarchy also has a strong influence on modern civilization, although many cultures have moved towards a more egalitarian social system over the past century.show more
