In addition to her father's alleged history of sexual assault and harassment, Ivanka has also done little to advocate for women's issues since being in the White House. 

Ivanka came 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.

The provision was an important first step in addressing the gender pay gapand issue Ivanka has championedyet she did support the decision of 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.

Ivanka also said nothing against the Trump's Department of Health and Human Services rolling back a mandate which required employers to cover birth control for female employees. Ivanka's consistent inability to push back against the administration's seemingly anti-woman agenda has many wondering whether her feminism is sincere.

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

Is it really fair to blame her for her father's actions?
