Ivanka Trump publishing book for professional women

Ivanka Trump will be publishing a book next spring to help professional women.

Titled “Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules of Success,” the book by the daughter of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will help professional women “create the lives they want to live,” according to Portfolio, the business imprint of Penguin Random House that announced the book June 6.

For Trump, a convert to Orthodox Judaism and a working mother of three, it will be her second book. Her first, a memoir and self-help book published in 2009, is called “The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life.”

In addition to writing about being a working mom, Trump is the executive vice president of development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization and owner of Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry and the Ivanka Trump Collection. She also has been campaigning for her father, a billionaire real estate magnate.

The book announcement comes on the heels of more bad press for her father concerning women’s issues. In a 1994 interview that resurfaced last week, Donald Trump told ABC News that “putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing,” and that while he “didn’t want to sound too much like a chauvinist,” he tended to go “through the roof” if dinner wasn’t ready on time.

In April, he said presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was “playing the woman card” and, a month earlier, quickly revoked his assertion in March that women should be punished for having illegal abortions. 

Last summer, Donald Trump insinuated Fox News host Megyn Kelly was having her period when she asked him a question during a debate regarding his remarks about women.
