About the event

Join this free webinar and 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 address several of these female power brokers who either ruled Egypt as Queen, as Regent or as King, among them Hatshepsut, Nefretiti, and Cleopatra. Dr. Cooney, through the lives of these powerful women and the science of archaeology, looks into the lens of time to further imagine their palace life, and finds a further segue into the society of ancient Egypt and female leadership in society today.
