Hmong Mother

The Hmong People society originally from Mongolia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and southeast China. As of 2011 the worldwide Hmong population is about twelve million. The Hmong culture is patrilineal, allowing a husband's family to make all major decisions, even when they solely concern the woman. However, the Hmong women have traditionally carried a large amount of responsibility and some power due to their necessary contribution of food and labor to the family. - via Wikipedia
