VIDEO: When the Women of Iceland Went on Strike
Seven years ago I made a movie where I went to nine countries to see what great ideas of theirs I could "steal" and bring back here to help us in the U.S. It was called "Where To Invade Next", with the satirical idea of doing what we do best — invading countries — but instead of taking their oil or land, we take something we could really use: free health care, 8 weeks of paid vacation, free college and more women in power. I thought that now would be a good time to show you one scene from it —my visit to Iceland and how the women decided to fight back.
