Thank you for another fascinating story. However I gotta say, I found myself bristling at the repetition of the word, 'primitive', to describe a matriarchal society in which it's very unlikely women are raped and murdered, or experience the slow burn of coercive control.

In fact, I'm moved to respond by writing an article asking something along the lines of What's So 'Primitive' About Women Having Power? Here’s the link to how I answered this question!
