As has historically been the case, children of the president often find greater success in their careers, or future careers, after their parent takes the Oval Office. Chelsea Clinton, while gifted with her own skills, has a recognizable name due in large part to who her parents are. The same is also true for Jenna Bush Hager, who is currently a correspondent for NBC. While first children may be successful on their own, their last names make them even more noteworthy, like Ivanka Trump. President Donald Trump's eldest daughter was successful before her father took office, and is now releasing a new book that's sure to be a best seller. So, when does Ivanka Trump's book come out? Women Who Work will focus on what it means to be a working women in this day and age.
With a May 2 release date, Ivanka Trump recently canceled any book tour appearances surrounding her new book's publication due to potential conflicts of interest. In a Facebook post explaining her decision, Trump explained, "Out of an abundance of caution and to avoid the appearance of using my official role to promote the book, I will not publicize the book through a promotional tour or media appearances."
Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success, Trump claims, was written before her position in the White House was official, even before the election last November. Trump also describes the book as a "personal project," and has "established the Ivanka M. Trump Charitable Fund to receive the unpaid portion of [her] advance and future royalties received from Women Who Work and to make grants to charitable organizations that support the economic empowerment for women and girls," according to her statement.
Trump's new book seeks to explore the complicated meaning of being a working woman, and promises to inform readers of the best lessons Trump herself has learned during her career. Chapters "on subjects such as identifying opportunities, shifting careers smoothly, negotiating, leading teams, starting companies, managing work and family, and helping change the system to make it better for women—now and in the future," are included in the new book, according to Barnes and Noble.
A portion of the proceeds of Trump's latest book will be distributed by the newly minted Ivanka M. Trump Charitable Fund to charities such as "The National Urban League," and "The Boys & Girls Clubs of America."
And while the book doesn't come out until May 2, it's still expected to do fairly well, as Ivanka Trump's clothing line sales have also soared since her father took office. As Trump's success continues to climb, though, it's important to take note of how the first daughter is handling these conflicts of interest, and what exactly she's doing as a self-proclaimed advocate for women. Writing a book on the topic is great — now, people will be watching closely to see whether she follows her own rules or not.
