Are there communities based on matriarchal structure?
FAQ - Asked Questions

I have dreamed of a community that is based on a matriarchal structure, and I know others who have expressed the desire to live in such a community. Does such a place exist, or is one currently being planned?

Since I am familiar with lots of different projects in Germany and Austria, I know little about other countries. If somebody has information, let me know, I will add it here.

The main 'keywords' for the search engines are "Cohousing" and "Intentional communities" (read about it on Wikipedia)

Besides the mixed gender communities there is a rapidly growing number of "women's cohousing projects" in German countries, for women and their children only. I coudn't find something like that in English, even not an expression. Send info if you have; meanwhile I keep searching.

I started a section "Alternatives" under Weblinks and added Cohousing links.

Users asked:
Can patriarchy be nonviolent?
No. patriarchy is a violent "state of being" by definition. Patriarchy includes duress and force. You are forced to pay taxes, even, if you don't care of getting something back from the state or government. You are forced to send your children to school. Your children are forced to go to school. You are forced to pay for a health insurance, that you maybe do not want. And so on. Just look to your life and check out, what you do not want to do though it would cause no harm.
