Kara Cooney, esteemed Egyptologist and author of When Women Ruled the World: Six Queens of Egypt, addresses questions of ancient social inequalities and how women negotiated their limited leadership roles. How was their power expressed when regularly cloaked by a man’s dominance? Were they able to rule “behind the throne”? How much of this ancient reality still touches us today? Offered in connection with the exhibition Queen Nefertari: Eternal Egypt.
