A Place Where Women Rule

Every few months or so I see this kind of story about a small community of women, here and there around the world, groups who form a cooperative village excluding men. They have come together, after all, to escape from the nightmares of their dysfunctional relationships with men. This particular story is about women in Kenya who flee from forced marriages and such. Interesting to see how successful they are in starting up economic activity and supporting each other in the face of male attacks. It is an instance of the matriarchy as a reaction to patriarchal domination, of the sort that must have occured here and there for thousands of years.
