Gynocracy \Gy*noc"ra*cy\ (j[i^]*n[o^]k"r[.a]*s[y^]), n. [See Gynecocracy.] Female government; gynecocracy. [1913 Webster] The aforesaid state has repeatedly changed from absolute despotism to republicanism, not forgetting the intermediate stages of oligarchy, limited monarchy, and even gynocracy; for I myself remember Alsatia governed for nearly nine months by an old fishwoman. --Sir W. Scott. [1913 Webster]
