How This Helps Our Community: This event lands on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which is also known as, MLK Day of Service and is observed as a day on, not a day off.

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? Dr. Kara Cooney is a professor of Egyptology at UCLA. Her academic work focuses on death preparations, afterlife beliefs, and gender studies. She is currently investigating coffin reuse during the Bronze Age Collapse, allowing her to examine funerary objects in dozens of museums around the world, including the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the Louvre in Paris, British Museum in London, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. She appeared as lead expert in the popular Discovery Channel special The Secrets of Egypt's Lost Queen, and is the creator and host of Discovery's Out of Egypt. Her book, The Woman Who Would be Queen, was published in 2014. In 2018, her book, When Women Ruled the World: Six Queens of Egypt, was published by National Geographic Books. She lives in Los Angeles. If you are not yet a member of the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) Orange County Chapter, now is a great time to sign up.
