“I felt an obligation to seize this moment and join the administration,” Ivanka Trump announced during a speech at a business conference in Japan. “I saw a chance to help fuel the number of women-owned businesses and grow our economy.”
Ivanka Trump shared her inspiration while championing women’s issues.
During a summit in Tokyo, the first daughter encouraged more women to peruse stem careers, and other fields typically dominated by men.
She also praised Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for supporting women in Japan’s work-force through paid-family-leave programs.
“Five years ago, right after I became Prime Minister, I have raised high the banner of women’s empowerment and have placed it in the center of my economic growth policies,” Prime Minister Abe announced.
Ivanka is set to return home Saturday, just one day before President Trump begins his tour of Asia.
