There's a culture in southeast asia (in the Malaysia/Indonesia area) that
is matriarchical(sp?). My memory fails me as to the name of that
tribe/culture, but I do know that they have the females own property and
get inheritance (instead of the males), and the husbands take the wives'
name instead of vice versa, etc., as opposed to (only) the males receiving
inheritance, which is common in other asian cultures.

This may no longer be true today, though. They probably no longer keep
their distinctive culture.
