Who were the women who once ruled the richest and most successful state of the ancient Mediterranean and African Bronze Age? Despite the patriarchy in which they lived, Ancient Egypt’s female kings ruled with real, unadulterated power. Yet many of these female leaders were judged harshly for taking power. Some were erased from the historical record by the men who followed them, leaving them elusive historical figures surrounded by mystery and myth. Go beyond the myths to discover these powerful female kings and their historical legacy.
Copies of Cooney’s book, The Woman Who Would Be King, are for sale at the program. A book signing follows the talk.
