Nat Geo Live: When Women Ruled the World with Kara Cooney
March 6, 2022
Egyptologist Kara Cooney will deliver a fascinating tale of female power through the stories of six female pharaohs—shining a piercing light on perceptions of women leaders and why they have been so rare.
Throughout history, powerful women have been called many things—witches, regents, and seductresses. But there was a time in the ancient world when at least one was called “King.” Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology, will introduce you to some strong female leaders, whose power was compromised from the start.
