There are modern matriarchal societies, mainly aboriginal ones, in which the subsistence level is low and hence the didn't develop the drive for possessions that comes with patriarchy. One can research:
"... Minangkabau, E De (Rhade), Mosuo, Berbers and Tuareg and, in Europe, e.g., Sardinian people.[9][10]..." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matriarchy

Those societies are nothing like Amazons, in fact they are more egalitarian, and males and females have joined roles. To model possible matriarchal societies on the existing patriarchal ones is to ignore the real evidences of the existing such, and retreat in fantasies, which is not necessary. Why guess when one can research what still exists?
