When Women Ruled the World: Egyptologist Kara Cooney

When Women Ruled the World: Egyptologist Kara Cooney

November 10, 2018, 7:30 pm at Wortham Center's Cullen Theater

Event date: 11/10/2018 7:30 PM Add to iCalendar

Presented by Society for the Performing Arts 

When it comes to women in power, we’ve come a long way…right? Join Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology, for a look at a time in ancient history when women ruled the world. Often neglected in the history books, these women were considered exceptions to the rule, political pawns in a patriarchal society. But their power and influence is undeniable. Cleopatra used her sexuality – and her money – to build alliances with warlords of the Roman empire. Neferusobek was the first woman to definitively take the title of King. Nefertiti is known more for her beauty than for bringing a fractured Egypt together. What can we learn from how these women ruled? Dr. Cooney shares some illuminating answers.
