Women of the Nile: Goddesses, Queens and a Pharaoh.

Hatshepsut was the most prominent female rule of ancient Egypt.

For more than 20 years, she held the reigns of Egypt's government at a time when Egypt was the most powerful state in the ancient world.

She was Queen, regent and then the female Pharaoh, as she wore the Pharoah's beard (an early Drag King) and ruled Egypt as Pharaoh.

Enjoy a private viewing of exhibits (in the Lila Acheson Wallace Galleries of Egyption Art), listen to curator talk (by Adela Oppenheim, Associate Curator)

Mingle with others and ejoy refreshments at this elegant event. Event is similar to the Post-Pride Met Event, but with an LBT women's focus
