Description

This riveting narrative explores the lives of six remarkable female pharaohs, from Hatshepsut to Cleopatra women who ruled with real power and shines a piercing light on our own perceptions of women in power today Female rulers are a rare phenomenon but thousands of years ago in ancient Egypt, women reigned supreme Regularly, repeatedly, and with impunity, queens like Hatshepsut, Nefertiti, and Cleopatra controlled the totalitarian state as power brokers and rulers But throughout human history, women in positions of power were often used as political pawns in a male dominated society What was so special about ancient Egypt that provided women this kind of access to the highest political office What was it about these women that allowed them to transcend patriarchal obstacles What did Egypt gain from its liberal reliance on female leadership, and could today s world learn from its example Celebrated Egyptologist Kara Cooney delivers a fascinating tale of female power, exploring the reasons why it has seldom been allowed through the ages, and why we should care.
