    Given a choice, will you favour matriarchy?

    I dont think any kind of "archy" is good , whether it is patriarchy OR matriarchy. Everyone has to have a say in the operation of things .
    Everyone else can pitch in with suggestions, but the final authority in a family should be that of a husband AND wife.

    No. As master Yoda would say -- Two articles on 'pagan' and 'feminist-wiccan' websites does not a growing interest constitute. Do you have anything from the mainstream news media, or perhaps, from a peer-reviewed publication? These days it takes very little to put out an opinion piece. Don't take everything you read on the Internet seriously.

    No, all kinds of domination is abhorrent. I skimmed through the first article that you posted, it doesn't seem to make a case for matriarchy. There are better articles out there.

    Hi,

    Any kind of domination is bad and distasteful.

    Both husband and wife should discuss and jointly take decision.

    There is a world of difference between patriarchy and matriarchy. Patriarchal approach is a whole lot different from the characterestics that define matriarchy. It is not just replacement of men by women. The entire culture (as we know and experience today) changes with matriarchy. And this is what makes it very attractive.

    What Might It Be Like To Live In A Matriarchal Society Of Peace? Can You Imagine? by Carol P. Christ

    This article may give a better appreciation of matriarchy.

    It should be observed that in every way the characteristics of a matriarchy differs from that of a patriarchy; in almost all dimensions of living.

    Also refer:
    Matriarchy

    "Matriarchies are not just a reversal of patriarchy, with women ruling over men – as the usual misinterpretation would have it. Matriarchies are mother-centered societies, they are based on maternal values: care-taking, nurturing, motherliness, which holds for everybody: for mothers and those who are not mothers, for women and men alike.
    Matriarchal societies are consciously built upon these maternal values and motherly work, and this is why they are much more realistic than patriarchies. They are, on principle, need-oriented. Their precepts aim to meet everyone’s needs with the greatest benefit. So, in matriarchies, mothering – which originates as a biological fact – is transformed into a cultural model. This model is much more appropriate to the human condition than the way patriarchies conceptualise motherhood and use it to make women, and especially mothers, into slaves."
