Ivanka Trump not only sees her father as a feminist, but she says “it’s a big reason I am the woman I am today”.
In addition to being a mother of three, the daughter of Donald Trump and his first wife, Ivana, is also an executive vice-president in the Trump Organization. Ivanka, 34, runs her own fashion brand, as well.
And while surveys show her father struggles with female support, in an interview with the U.K.’s Sunday Times Magazine, Ivanka pointed to the presumptive GOP presidential nominee’s actions as proof that he views women on the same scale as men, according to the Washington Examiner.
Trump has said that if elected president of the United States, Ivanka and her siblings, Eric and Donald Trump Jr., will assume control over his businesses empire.
“People talk about 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 told the Sunday Times.
“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,” Ivanka added. “He’s also surrounded me with strong female role models who have done just that since I was a little girl.”
