Kara Cooney, Egyptologist.

7 p.m. Thursday, February 13, 2020.
First Interstate Center for the Arts, 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd.

When it comes to women in power, we’ve come a long way, right? Join Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology, for a look at a time in ancient history when women ruled the world. Often neglected in the history books, these women were considered exceptions to the rule, political pawns in a patriarchal society. Photo of Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology.

But their power and influence is undeniable. Cleopatra used her sexuality—and her money—to build alliances with warlords of the Roman empire. Neferusobek was the first woman to definitively take the title of King. Nefertiti is known more for her beauty than for bringing a fractured Egypt together. What can we learn from how these women ruled? Dr. Cooney shares some illuminating answers.

Before you go.

National Geographic Live is not a movie; it's a speaker series.

Here are a few other things you should know before attending the next event:

  • It's family-friendly! All ages are welcomed and encouraged. 
  • Speakers will present their photographs, videos, and experiences for about 90 minutes, with no intermission.
  • Doors open one hour prior to each performance. All guests must pass through security metal detectors and bag searches. We recommend use of small purses or clutches.
