Working Women Are Unimpressed By Ivanka Trump’s New Book

Ivanka Trump

Ivanka Trump, America’s self-styled ‘First Daughter’, has attempted her very best Sheryl Sandberg impression by launching a book about making a success of it as a working woman.

The problem is, because of her ludicrously wealthy background and helping hand from her Dad, the President, most of us will never be able to relate.

For example, financially, Vocativ reports that Ivanka’s assets amount to around $200million, not including the $741million her and husband Jared Kushner (advisor to President Trump) make as beneficiaries from business and property. We’d say that little extra cash might help you with the school run.

Make It Work, an American campaign for economic security for women and families, released a press statement about Ivanka’s book, which is called ‘Women Who Work: Rewriting The Rules For Success’.

It read: “The book was not written for women who are working two jobs, caring for a sick loved one, and struggling to make ends meet. It wasn’t written for the millions of women who work paycheck to paycheck…[or are] doing unpaid labour in their homes as caregivers and homemakers.”

It didn’t help that Ivanka suggested that omitting massages from her normal routine equated to “survival mode”:

Or that she’d used scores of inspiring quotes from famous feminists who have been openly and deeply critical about the Trump administration and its flagrant misogyny:

Then there’s this review of the book by the New York Times. It calls the attempt “witlessly derivative, endlessly recapitulating the wisdom of other, canonical self-help and business books.”

Oh, and this:

Think we’ll give it a miss.
