When Women Ruled:

 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.
