community in Yunnan Province. The findings reveal that since the
tourist development in the 1990s, the neoliberal capitalism and
globalization have increased the income of local women but weakened
their matrilineal cultures and “walking marriage” system.
Correspondingly the author proposes measures on a scale of
community planning to preserve and adapt Mosuo matrilineal cultures
and the “walking marriage” system under the threat of neoliberal
globalization. (Less)
