In new book, Ivanka Trump gets serious about women at work

In new book, Ivanka Trump gets serious about women at work

Ivanka Trump's new book, Women Who Work, is all about being a career-minded mom who has it all.

Ivanka is now working in her father, Donal Trump's, presidential administration as assistant to the president, but before she took on that prestigious role, she ran the Trump Organization alongside her brothers. Trying to find a "balance" between the two, Ivanka says (and has said in subsequent interviews), is just setting yourself up for failure.

"It's natural that Ivanka Trump's thinking would evolve", the AP article argued, comparing her 2009 book to her new one.

Trump, whose glossy family photographs on social media showcase a carefully curated image, reveals that she shared the first picture of her daughter only after being snapped by paparazzi because she did not want the first one "to be sold to the press". Slaughter, who has called Donald Trump "toxic", is well-known for her piece in The Atlantic, titled "Why Women Still Can't Have It All", and a follow-up book, "Unfinished Business".

"It's a strawberry milkshake of inspirational quotes", Ms Senior writes. She encourages seeking accommodations at work, like asking for flextime or working remotely. In late 2013 she gathered her husband, Jared Kushner, and several employees to brainstorm ways to "cultivate a new image" and seem more accessible. Since then, employees have been given two months of paid family leave and flexible working hours for new parents. To Ms Senior, she is missing an opportunity to advocate for changes that might help the women she is writing for.

For Trump, "survival mode" is merely a temporary remove from a vastly privileged life, in which indulgences that most Americans rarely or never experience are simply everyday "self-care" - a lack of self-awareness, or awareness of others' reality, which is notably similar to her father's attitude.

Offensive lines are always important, but protection up front will be even more vital to the Bears over the next couple years. Back in 2013, Sowell started 12 games for them at left tackle and was PFF's lowest graded tackle in the league that year.


As Wired put it, Pepsi's tone deaf message was so superficial as to enrage the entire internet, "All those Women's Marches, Black Lives Matter protests, and demonstrations outside Trump Tower would be much more effervescent-and effective!-if someone had just brought some soda".

Whether they read Ms Trump's book as earnest advice or incognito marketing for the Trump name, nearly everyone who reviewed Women Who Work agreed that a lot could be gleaned about the inner workings of the Trump family.

NOW: Trump also discusses how to juggle career and family and live a more purposeful life. She's a mother with a staff at home and a team at work, and a host of problems that run the gamut from "negotiating a major partnership" to "following my dad around the country on a Presidential campaign".

If you're still wondering why exactly reporters at NYT thought this failed business plan was relevant to Ivanka's dictator aspirations, look no further than slide six: "Ivanka will powerfully outline her key principles to (graciously) getting what you want - whether it's a lower rent, a massive pay raise or a historic landmark on Pennsylvania Avenue".

Avoid the book if you hate the self-help genre, Maria Puente wrote for USA Today.

"If you're curious about Trump, 35, who's taken an unpaid job as a senior adviser to her father, and how she might influence the Trump administration's attitudes about women", she writes.
