Saint Helena Virtual Forum
When Women Ruled:
Feminine power in Egypt’s Fertile Crescent
Wednesday July 28, 2021
5:30-6:30 PM PDT
Registration and links to view the webcast are below
For thousands of years, women of power and rule have endured wrath, been dismissed, been removed from history and too seldom been celebrated. While female rulers are exceedingly rare, in ancient Egypt remarkable information has surfaced from archaeological records and hieroglyphic texts that enable their stories to be told.
Join us for a provocative conversation with renowned professor of Egyptology at UCLA Dr. Kara Cooney, whose specialties include afterlife beliefs, burial preparations, and gender studies. Dr. Cooney will be interviewed by museum professional and Saint Helena Forum board member, Peggy Loar.
