Women empowerment ? The Khasi way

Women empowerment – The Khasi way
 

News: Recently, The Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) ordered not to issue a Scheduled Tribe certificate to any Khasi person who adopts their father’s surname.
 

About:
 The matrilineal system amongst Khasis refers to a social and kinship system where descent and inheritance are traced through the female line.
 In this system, family lineage, property, and clan membership are passed down from mother to daughter. Among Khasis, the youngest daughter (khatduh) of the family is entrusted the full share of the ancestral – or the clan’s – property
 The three tribes of Meghalaya Khasis, Jaintias, and Garos practise a matrilineal system of inheritance.
