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.

Books are available for advance purchase through our partnering bookstore, The Novel Neighbor of Webster Groves.  Books will be available for pick-up the night of the show and the author will be available for a book signing immediately following the event.  All books must be purchased through the Novel Neighbor in order to participate in the book signing. Click here to purchase a copy of When Women Ruled The World.
