Description:The city of Petra was built by the Nabateans, who lived in the Wadi Musa valley for more than 400 years, in a spot strategically located along early silk and spice trade routes. The city fell to the Roman Empire in A.D. 106.
The Hellenistic facades are carved directly into the canyons and use the natural terrain as guides. Today, the monuments are vulnerable to flash flooding in the Wadi Musa and continuing erosion from wind and rain.
The number of visitors to Petra has decreased in recent years, in part because of instability and violence in the Middle East.
With the recent revelations of sexual harassment and assault in politics, the media, and entertainment, the following talk from Gretchen Carlson highlights issues and connects with our One Book program on the book We Believe You.

In a remarkable, fierce talk, she tells her story — and identifies three specific things we can all do to create safer places to work. “We will no longer be underestimated, intimidated or set back,” Carlson says. “We will stand up and speak up and have our voices heard. We will be the women we were meant to be.”
