Michael Moore: Women in US Politics Have 'Fake Power'

By Jason Guerrasio, Oct 02, 2015 Business Insider

Michael Moore's new documentary, "Where To Invade Next," follows the Oscar-winning filmmaker as he travels the world looking at ways other countries do things better than in the US.

He discovered women in some other countries have more power in government and corporations than they do here.

"You notice in these countries women have real power, not the fake power that women have here," Michael Moore said in a press conference following a showing of the film on Friday at the New York Film Festival. "Twenty percent of our congress are women. The sad thing is historians 100 years from now will see on film and video tape ourselves happy with the 20 women elected to the US senate, seeing they're the majority gender [in the country] and the minority gender has 80 seats."

In the film Moore goes to places like Norway and Iceland, where women are prominent figures. In fact, Iceland has the distinction of electing the first ever female president, Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, in 1980.
