Ivanka Trump: My Dad Is ‘a Feminist’
Ivanka Trump said on Sunday that her father is a “feminist.”
“My father is a feminist,” the executive vice president of Trump Organization said. “He always told me and showed me that I could do anything I set my mind to if I married vision and passion with work ethic. He’s surrounded me with strong female role models who have done just that since I was a little girl.”
The Hill reports:
The billionaire real estate mogul has frequently been criticized for his treatment of and comments about women — from Fox News host Megyn Kelly to Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi — throughout his presidential campaign. And a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll found that 77 percent of women have an unfavorable view of Trump.
But Ivanka Trump insists that her dad supports gender equality.
“He has lived it, he has employed women at the highest levels of the Trump Organization for decades, so I think it’s a great testament to how capable he thinks women are and has shown that his whole life,” she said.
