Because almost all societies are androcentric (male centered), women’s needs, interests, ideas, and perspectives on the world are often ignored or trivialized. Matrifocal communities are organized around values traditionally seen as “feminine” such as peace, nurturance, cooperation, and care for others. A Matrifocal Orientation that gives voice to women’s perspectives would go a long way toward creating a just and peaceful world for all. A Matrifocal Orientation presumes that women’s interests are not special interests, but human interests.
