The founder and CEO of the nonprofit Girls Who Code, Reshma Saujani also tows the same line, she tweeted at Ivanka Tuesday telling her not to feature her story in “Women Who Work” unless she is “going to stop being #complicit.”

The work of Anne-Marie Slaughter, a political scientist who was a Hillary Clinton supporter in 2016, is quoted extensively in the book. Slaughter, who called Trump “toxic” is very well known for her piece in The Atlantic, titled “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” and a follow-up book, “Unfinished Business.”

In the foreword of her book, Ivanka noted she wrote the book as her father, Donald Trump, was running for president, and that the manuscript was completed before the election. Throughout the book, she mentions many lessons she learned campaigning with her father, including the importance of listening to voices outside one’s own “echo chamber.”
