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. What can we learn from how these women ruled?

National Geographic Live brings the top National Geographic photographers, scientists, filmmakers and adventurers to audiences to share their behind-the-scenes stories, images and video—live onstage.

This event is presented by the Seattle Symphony. The orchestra will not perform on this program.
