Lecture: “The Role of Women in the Establishment of the Ancient Egyptian Civilization”

Lecture delivered by Maisa Mostafa, Egyptology Consultant at CULTNAT

From 11:00 AM–12:00 PM.

Pharaonic women had their societal importance and rights. Unlike their counterparts in successive times, they did not struggle to receive this importance; it was rather a natural intuitive thing based on a deeply rooted religious belief in the equality between the two elements of human life. This lecture depicts several aspects of the lives of Pharaonic women as goddesses, queens, working women, etc. It also demonstrates some influential examples and the legal rights of women in ancient Egypt.
