Macrostructures

Macrostructures

The term macrostructures in sociology refer to comprehensive and all-embracing social patterns of societal relationships that are greater and beyond mesostructures. Like mesostructures, macrostructures are also beyond immediate acquaintances and peer relationships.
Matriarchy and Patriarchy are some examples of macrostructures. The patriarchal system of society ensures that male members of the family gain prominence and power over other female members, ensuring male dominance in economic and political lives.
