 Description: 

This riveting storey examines the lives of six extraordinary female pharaohs, from Hatshepsut to Cleopatra—women who ruled with true strength—and sheds a piercing light on our own views of women in power today.

Female kings are a rare phenomenon—but thousands of years ago in ancient Egypt, women reigned supreme. Regularly, repeatedly, and with immunity, queens like Hatshepsut, Nefertiti, and Cleopatra dominated the totalitarian state as power-brokers and rulers. Yet in human history, women in positions of authority were most commonly seen as political pawns in a male-dominated society. What was so unique about ancient Egypt that gave women this kind of access to the highest political office? What was it about these women that helped them to overcome patriarchal obstacles? What did Egypt benefit from its liberal dependence on female leadership, and may today's world learn from its example?

Celebrated Egyptologist Kara Cooney delivers a fascinating tale of female influence, investigating the reasons why it has rarely been allowed over the years, and why we should care.
