In the end, Hatshepsut was ruling Egypt in all but name.” says in paragraph 9. This shows even in her role as a regent she was a successful leader. When Hatshepsut was crowned pharaoh, she choose a name that represented Maat, which was crucial to Egyptians. In paragraph 12, it states,“Hatshepsut chose Maatkare (mah-KAH-ray).

Under Hammurabi the Babylonians had a set of laws, and the Egyptians excelled at writing.

People are powerful through their courage and confidence. A simple statement that can be interpreted differently when it comes to certain situations. However, for William Shakespeare, he had no problem presenting a great deal of strength for two women characters that are not displayed as long as their everlasting power. In the play Julius Caesar, despite the characters being mentioned intermittently, Calpurnia and Portia are both seen as empowering figures because they’re an impact on other men as well as the strength they withhold in themselves.
