See the entry under "patriarchy" in the Concise Encyclopedia of Sociology.

For instance, the whole section dealing with "biological versus social theories" is absurd.

I've been championing patriarchal societies for years now and have honestly never thought about this. Massive portions of the section are completely unreferenced, and nearly all of it is basically irrelevant to patriarchy. I would say that the right solution is to unceremoniously blank the whole thing, but then I'd probably say the same of the article as a whole. It's hideously bad work on just about every level. Better to have nothing and start again from scratch.

I'm disappointed that GorillaWarfare hasn't shown up to defend it. Isn't she an expert about everything related to gender?
