It sounds like you want a content management system, not just a version control system. Git and Subversion are designed for cooperative projects, they have no access control built into them.

There's an extensive list here: http://www.cmsreview.com/OpenSource/directory.html

I know nothing about CMSes in general, so I can't really advise you any further than that.
