NOTES

Ancient Egypt chronology -- Introduction: Why women don't rule the world -- Merneith : queen of blood -- Neferusobek : the last woman standing -- Hatshepsut : queen of public relations -- Nefertiti : more than just a pretty face -- Tawosret : the survivor -- Cleopatra : drama queen -- Epilogue: Why women should rule the world

"Explores the lives of six remarkable female pharaohs, from Hatshepsut to Cleopatra--women who ruled with real power. What was so special about ancient Egypt that provided women this kind of access to the highest political office? What was it about these women that allowed them to transcend patriarchal obstacles? What did Egypt gain from its liberal reliance on female leadership, and could today's world learn from its example?"-- Provided by publisher
