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

Nevertheless, Ivanka - a prominent champion of working women - says she is determined to make corporate culture more child-friendly.

Five days later, Ivanka Trump became an unpaid federal employee, serving as assistant to the president.

The premise of her book is basic: there is no such thing as a work-life balance for women (or men, for that matter) because work and life are two different worlds that compete with each other to demand your time and attention. ("Women Who Work" was, in fact, the name of an initiative Trump started on her website, providing advice to working-girl millennials, before it became the title of this book.) It's flawless for a generation weaned on Pinterest and goop.com - you can easily imagine its many pink-tinted pages appearing on Shoshanna's manifestation board in "Girls". "We're planning adventures with our kids and weekend getaways with our friends".

Richard Painter, who served in an ethics role for President George W. Bush, said Trump has the right to write books, noting that the issue is if she is 'going to profit over using an official position to increase book sales'. She also shares some semi-juicy anecdotes: She turned down a post-college job at Vogue that Anna Wintour had offered her, personally and unsolicited, in favor of pursuing her "true passion" for real estate.

The White House, however, is primarily responsible for providing the first daughter with legal and ethical guidance, the letter said, as well as monitoring her compliance with the ethical standards that are placed on government employees.

However, he chose to ignore his daughter's advice, reducing Ms Trump to tears, according to a New York Times report quoting sources in the room at the time. However, it appears Ivanka used Goodall's quote without giving her a head's up first, and now Goodall is speaking out. Within the Trump administration, Ivanka is, arguably, the President's closest adviser. She also faces some unique challenges.

"During extremely high-capacity times, like during the campaign, I went into survival mode", she writes. "I'm not looking to hit him to help myself".

"I'm really, really trying to learn", she added.

"In light of government ethics rules, I want to be clear that this book is a personal project".

Ivanka Trump has released a book on working women, to pretty much immediate mockery for how far out of touch she is with the average woman's life. "In the short run I'll have missteps, and, in some cases, I'll take shots that I could have avoided if I had publicly said what I think".
