I haven’t kissed a man for a long time,We all dream of falling in love and getting married. But we like living here and don’t want to have to leave the town to find a husband.’The lack of eligible bachelors has now led the community’s many single young ladies for make an appeal for interested men – but only those willing to adapt to living in a women’s world.We’d like to get to know men who would leave their own lives and come to be a part of ours.But first they need to agree to do what we say and live according to our rules.
There are lots of things that women do better than men. Our town is prettier, more organised, and far more harmonious than if men were in charge,’
‘When problems or disputes arise, we resolve them in a woman’s way, trying to find consensus rather than conflict.We share everything, even the land we work on. Nobody competes with anyone here. It’s all for one, and one for all.The whole town came together recently to help buy a huge widescreen TV for our community centre so we can all watch soap operas together.And there’s always time to stop and gossip, try on each other’s clothes and do each other’s hair and nails.’
