beyond being “woman-centric”, a revolutionary matriarch calls for the elimination of gender as a social construction all together. to be matri (mother) centric is to place value on the universal conditions of nurturance, education, healing, sustainability,etc. the development of a healthy society should not be marginalized by gender and its social/behavioral implications. we are to take responsibility for these essential values of development as a society. we are to undo hetero-normative patriarchy while working to re-socialize men as mothers.
revolutionary matriarchy is not a mirror of patriarchy- but it’s opposite.
