Does Ivanka Trump deserve all the hate?
Ivanka Trump recently visited a Connecticut high school, which angered many parents.
Some Connecticut parents reportedly pulled their kids out of school after first daughter and presidential adviser Ivanka Trump made a surprise visit.
"This should have been brought to our attention, although I do understand security reasons," parent Karey Fitzgerald told News 12. "I think we should have had the choice to send our child to school or keep them home."
Ivanka has been criticized for repeatedly failing to push for women's issues in the Trump administration, causing many to label her as a "fake feminist." She supported 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—a provision meant to address the gender pay gap.
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 decision to roll back a mandate which required employers to cover birth control for female employees.
Because of her consistent inability to push back against the administration's seemingly anti-woman agenda, many believe Ivanka is fair game.
But others have defended Ivanka, claiming she is being treated unfairly and she has a solid 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.
