The Chinese region with women in charge – Nick Mackie

From the BBC:

For centuries, the Mosuo women sang haunting ballads on Lugu Lake to arouse their lovers’ passions.

Now they sing to satisfy the tourists, but 42-year-old Zaxi Zouma is not complaining.

Immaculate in her bright traditional head-dress and turquoise tunic, life for her today is a far cry from the 1990s, when she toiled the fields to earn a meagre wage.
