In the remote village of Mawlynnong in northeast India, the Khasi tribe follows a rare tradition of women running the show.

“To disrespect a woman in this culture means to harm the society. Daughters are often more wanted than boys, and a family with just sons is considered to be miserable, because only daughters can assure the continuity of a clan.”
