l Lugu Lake in China is home to the King­dom of Women. The tribe have no word for fa­ther or hus­band and take lovers in­stead of mar­ry­ing. Prop­erty is handed down the fe­male line, and there is no stigma over pa­ter­nity of chil­dren. l On 24 Oc­to­ber 1975, 90 per cent of Ice­land’s women went on strike and re­fused to work, cook or look af­ter their chil­dren. To­day, a fem­i­nist agenda is still strong. Strip clubs are out­lawed and plans are afoot to ban pornog­ra­phy. l In the In­dian state of Megha­laya, tra­di­tion dic­tates that the youngest daugh­ter in­her­its all the prop­erty. But men are ad­dress­ing this ‘in­equal­ity’.
