Despite women's advances, none have wielded more power as rulers than the ancient Egyptian pharaohs Cleopatra and Hatshepsut. How did these powerful women succeed? And what lessons might they offer today? Kara Cooney, UCLA Egyptologist, and Joyce Tyldesley, professor of Egyptology at the University of Manchester, examine the legacies of these women who ruled the world. Moderated by Bettany Hughes, historian and documentary filmmaker, BBC.
