Ivanka Trump has come under criticism over her support of the Trump administration's decision to end an Obama-era policy that would have required businesses to collect and report information on how much they pay their workers alongside their gender, race, and ethnicity.
Many believe the provision would have been an important first step in addressing the gender pay gap, but Ivanka doesn't appear to be pushing back against her father's administration.
Ultimately, while I believe the intention was good and agree that pay transparency is important, the proposed policy would not yield the intended results. We look forward to continuing to work with EEOC, Congress and all relevant stakeholders on robust policies aimed at eliminating the gender wage gap.
But many have defended Ivanka's record as a feminist. She has spoken out forcefully against human trafficking, encouraged women to embrace their careers and donated the proceeds from her book "Women Who Work" to charity.
Thank you Ivanka for inspiring us girls and women to be our best as professionals, moms, wives and daughters.
But to many, Ivanka Trump's "feminism" is laughable at best.
"So, before you put too much hope in Ivanka, remember: She promotes a brand of feminism that makes her rich by exploiting the very people she's claiming to help. That's not being a feminist — that's being a Trump."
