National Geographic LIVE! with Professor of Egyptology: Kara Cooney, When Women Ruled the Earth

March 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology, to experience a time in ancient history when women ruled the world. Often neglected in the history books, powerful women like Cleopatra and Neferusobek were considered exceptions to the rule, political pawns in a patriarchal society. But their power and influence is undeniable—Cleopatra built alliances with warlords of the Roman Empire; Neferusobek was the first woman to definitively take the title of King; and Nefertiti is known more for her beauty than for bringing a fractured Egypt together. Dr. Cooney will share illuminating insights on what we can learn from how these powerful women earned their places in history at the Touhill on Friday, March 6. TICKET INFO
