User: In a patriarchal society,

Weegy: A patriarchal society is one whereby men are the decision-makers and hold positions of power and prestige, and have the power to define reality and common situations. For instance, in our North American societies, [ decision-making is largely governed by electoral politics and corporate interests, where men are over-represented. Also, because most positions of power and prestige, such as doctor, lawyer, business executive and politician, are held by men, we would define our society as patriarchal. Patriarchy therefore refers to a societal structure whereby men are dominant not in numbers or in force but in their access to status-related power and decision-making power. It is also connected to economics in that patriarchal societies men will have greater power over the economy. In our society, because men have higher income and greater access to the economy, they are said to be dominant. Power distribution in society should not be confused with power struggles at an individual level, although they can be reproduced in a smaller scale as well. For example, in many small businesses, the owner and top managers are male, and they will hire women to work for them. Patriarchy can be enforced in a variety of ways, including intimidation of women through violence, sexual assault and other forms of harassment, and the discrediting of their efforts to organize and resist. Patriarchal societies are typically more authoritarian and rely heavily on legal-rational modes of organization, show stronger military implication and more reliance on police repression to impose authority. It is a society that tends to hold contempt for women and for her attempts to emancipate herself. In these societies, women are presented with an interpretation of the world made by men, and a history of the world defined by men's actions. For instance, in history we learn about war and read the stories of male writers, whereas the stories of women are scarcely told. ]
