When Women Ruled the World

January 21, 2020 Des Moines Civic Center

A NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC LIVE LECTURE BY KARA COONEY (UNITED STATES)

GRADES 5-8

National Geographic Explorers, photographers, filmmakers, and scientists embody the importance of living curious, responsible, and empowered lives. We’re proud to present these inspiring role models through our student matinees.

Join Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology, for a look at a time in ancient history when women ruled the world. They’re often neglected in the history books, but their power and influence is undeniable. Cleopatra built alliances with warlords of the Roman Empire. Neferusobek was the first woman to definitively take the title of king. Nefertiti brought a fractured Egypt together. What can we learn from how these women ruled?
