Description: When it comes to women in power, weve come a long wayright?

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, Egypts powerful 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.
