The Kingdom of Girls (Mädchenland) is a series of photographs created by Karolin Klüppel between 2013-2014 in Mawlynnong village in the state of Meghalaya in India, where the Khasi indigenous people live in a matriarchal society. The girls are considered there of a particular importance - a matrilineal social system is being followed in which the line of succession passes through the youngest daughter. After marriage, the husband is taken into his wife's family home, and their children are to take their mother‘s name. A family which happened to receive only sons is considered to be unfortunate, since it is believed that merely daughters can assure the continuity of a clan. The way in which Klüppel depicts this eminent society presents with crisp, enchanting yet forward-looking commentaries on the culture.
