When Women Ruled The World

Six Queens of Egypt


Kara Cooney

In today's political landscape, female rulers are few and far between. But thousands of years ago in ancient Egypt women reigned supreme, controlling the authoritarian state as power brokers in times of war and peace: a rare phenomenon across human history. Through the seductive lens of six remarkable female pharaohs-including Hatshepsut, Nefertiti, and Cleopatra- celebrated Egyptologist Kara Cooney examines what made Egypt unique among history's great empires, exploring how these queens ruled, why they were erased from history, and how their reigns may govern our own perception of leadership today. In a provocative narrative unlike any Egyptian history you've ever read. Cooney shines a piercing light on why female power has seldom been allowed through the ages and why it matters more than ever.
