    In this study of women's place in the political and social history of ancient Egypt, Watterson brings to life the evidence of written records, monuments and sculpture, burial artefacts, wall-paintings and human remains. She first explores ancient Egyptian attitudes to women and in subsequent chapters describes the occupations open to them, love and marriage, health, childbirth, dress and domestic life. The book ends with a survey of the few women, among them Nefertiti, Hatshepsut and Cleopatra, who wielded political power.
