National Geographic Live: When Women Ruled the World
$29 - $38*
$42 - $54
National Geographic Live returns to Chicago on the Auditorium's historic stage with a yearlong series dedicated to inspirational women. Cleopatra used her sensuality -- 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. Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptian art and architecture at UCLA, offers a look at a time in ancient history when women ruled the world. Often neglected in history books, these women were considered exceptions to the rule, political pawns in a patriarchal society, but their power and influence is undeniable. What can we learn from how these women ruled? Dr. Cooney shares some illuminating answers.
