Four females in four matriarchal societies—A Khasi Indian girl that everyone expects to rule one day; an adolescent Mosuo Chinese growing into womanhood, taking charge of her body and desires; a Tuareg African woman in her prime learning what it takes to lead; and a Minangkabau Indonesian matriarch taking stock of her legacy and her clan’s future. “MATRIARCH” shows us what it’s like to grow up and grow old as a woman in a woman’s world.
