A residence of the Mosuo in Daliang Mountain, Sichuan Province. The Mosuo are a small ethnic group living in China's Yunnan and Sichuan provinces, close to the border with Tibet. They feature parts of the matriarchal culture: women are often the head of the house; inheritance is through the female line; the male-leaving behavior is popular and women make business decisions. However, unlike a true matriarchy, political power tends to be in the hands of males. [China.org.cn]
