Yesterday’s word

The word gynarchy means “government by women”

First usage

The word came into English in the late 1500s

Our word is a combination of the Greek word gynḗ (woman; female) and the suffix -archy (rule; government). The suffix -archy comes from Middle English and then Latin and then Greek.
