Egypt's Lost Queens

Joann Fletcher explores the hitherto downplayed role that women took in the running of state and, indeed, in shaping every aspect of life in Ancient Egypt. Perhaps unassumed by most, the ancient Egyptians were unique in their attitude to sexual equality with women holding the title of Pharaoh no fewer than 18 times, while there were also female doctors, tutors, prime ministers and priestesses.
