Girl Scouts celebrate women leaders, Nat Geo Live!, and other events

Sweets Before Supper

A new celebration will honor women leaders from all regions of the Girl Scouts Eastern Washington and North Idaho Council, including guest of honor and Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman. The event, hosted by Kris Crocker, also highlights 2019’s Gold Award recipients. The evening kicks off with Girl Scout Cookie-inspired desserts prepared by local chefs, with attendees choosing their favorite dessert of the night. Next is dinner prepared by the Davenport, along with a live auction and paddle raise. Sat, March 14 at 5:30 pm. $75-$1,000. Historic Davenport Hotel, 10 S. Post St. (747-8091)

National Geographic Live! When Women Ruled the World

Professor of Egyptology Kara Cooney offers a look at a time in ancient history when women ruled the world. Often neglected in the history books, these women were considered exceptions to the rule, political pawns in a patriarchal society. But their power and influence is undeniable. Cleopatra used her sexuality, and her money, to build alliances with warlords of the Roman Empire. Neferusobek was the first woman to definitively take the title of king. Nefertiti is known more for her beauty than for bringing a fractured Egypt together. Thu, Feb. 13 at 7 pm. $21.50-$30. First Interstate Center for the Arts, 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. (800-325-7328)
