WHEN WOMEN RULED THE WORLD: Six Queens of Egypt
Female rulers--revered and respected--are a rare phenomenon. Except, that is, in Egypt, where they governed regularly, repeatedly, and with impunity. This provocative narrative is unlike any history you've ever read. Through six lives, Cooney examines how Egypt's queens ruled, why they were erased from history, and how their reigns may govern our perception of leadership today. 16 pages of illustrations, most color.
