Power Play is the incredible story of Gro Harlem Brundtland, a young doctor and pro-choice abortion activist, who almost by accident is drawn into politics. As the government implodes around her, Gro learns to play her own power games, climbing the ranks to become the last woman standing among the ruins of Labour’s celebrated social democracy until she became Prime Minister in 1981.

Straight out of Norway, this hilarious political comedy, in the vein of unconventional series like
In the loop
The book, “The Unlikely Rise of Gro Harlem Brundtland,” uncovers Gro Harlem Brundtland’s improbable rise to the top of politics in the 1970s and 1980s. Surrounded by men who were not the most skilled and not the most committed to the common good, this woman committed to abortion and ecology overcame all adversities. Fun, lively and fast-paced.
