Furthering the knowledge and understanding of our world is the core purpose of National Geographic. Premium storytelling and visually stunning photography inspire people to act, enlightens their perspective, and provokes conversation.
National Geographic Live is a speaker series that brings to the stage first-hand accounts told by the magazine’s world-class explorers, photographers, scientists, filmmakers, and adventurers.
Throughout history, powerful women have been called many things—witches, regents, and seductresses. But there was a time in the ancient world when at least one was called “King.” Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptology, will introduce you to some strong female leaders, whose power was compromised from the start.
