Kara Cooney, Associate Professor, Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, UCLA
In conjunction with the publication of her new book. The Woman Who Would Be King: Hatshepsut's Rise to Power in Ancient Egypt, Cooney will draw from the latest field research to fill the gaps in what we know about Hatshepsut- the longest reigning female pharoah- and the obstacles that faced women who sought power and prestige in a society that equated authority with masculinity.
