More > step by step replacement of men by women as links through which vital relationships are traced, and marriages which maintain links to a person's uterine relatives (mother's or sister's family). In such circumstances, men attempt to assert control over women in the domestic sphere in order to manipulate affinal male kinship loyalties, but in other respects the status of women tends to remain high, evidently due to the importance of women as links in the social organization, their roles as substitutes for dead men, and their roles in matridominant subsistence agriculture. These developments are exemplified in one or more of three late prehistoric Algonquian societies of the Lenapean group located on the Eastern seabord: Medial, Coastal, and Subboreal.< Less

Throughout the 19th century scholars believed that the Proto Indo European (PIE) society had cross cousin marriage, matrilineal descent, and matriarchy (a female version of patriarchy). Then by the... More > middle of the 20th century, the backlash was proclaiming just the opposite: that PIE society was patrilineal and patriarchical, and had husband centered residence. Friedrich (1966:9) even speculated that "widows may have been marked for some mortuary ritual; sacrifice and interment with the husband."
