Peaceful Societies

You can call them "Segmentary Societies" like Emile Durkheim, "Regulated Anarchies" like Max Weber, "Peaceful Societies" like on the Website mentioned below or "Matriarchy", like German Scholars define it (not to confuse with Bachofen, goddess movement or FemDom). It all is the same kind of society with the same patterns.

Women Are More Powerful
Thought forms or spiritual insight, the biological ability to endure pain and a lot of other abilities make women more the cause of man's insecurities than he would like to admit. This article will focus on the psychic nurturing side of women that the vernacular lingo calls 'women's intuition'.
The Mosuo as a living matriarchal society

The Mosuo are a non-Chinese ethnic minority living within the boundaries of China. They are considered by Chinese anthropologists to be matriarchal, because they are still living in accordance with the patterns of matrilinearity and matrilocality.

Consensus - Balance - Peace

It seems that human beings are everywhere searching for the right balance between the cowboy and the sheriff, between chaos and tyranny, between the individual and society. Industrial societies give a monopoly of power to the state in exchange for a guaranty of peace. We take this social order for granted to the extent that we tend to assume that there is anarchy and perpetual warfare in tribal or stateless societies.

This is an example from the !Kung (Africa), how economics work in matriarchal societies:
Making Our Circle

It all started when a Soviet engineer decided to straighten out the road. The old road curved in this one spot just outside the village. So he brought in a lot of people and tractors and started ripping right through the hill where in the old times we held round dances.

Matriarchal Point of View

Since most patriarchal socialized women and men are not able to think out of patriarchal norms, they don't get the meaning of the term 'matriarchy'.

Most people believe mistakenly, that matriarchy is a simple reversal of patriarchy: What men do now would be taken over by women. Just an exchange of roles.
