Nat Geo Live coming to First Interstate February 13



National Geographic Live: When Women Ruled the World will be at First Interstate Center for the Arts, Thursday, February 13 at 7pm. 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. 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. Dr. Cooney shares some illuminating answers as to what we can learn from how these women ruled.
