The answer is indeed 'Matrilieanlity', although points would be awarded for 'Matriarchy'/'Matriarchal societies' as well.

Friedrich Engels in his book "The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State" extensively studied the Seneca people to conclude that in early days of societal evolution, there was group marriage - which meant that paternity was disputable while maternity wasn't - leading to matrilineality (tracing descent through the mother's side).

Amazon warriors were the first fictional matrilineal/matriarchal clan. And Khasi tribe is a matrilineal tribe in north-east India.

On another note, reading the newly updated Caution section on the Summer Slam page is strongly advised.
