Trump’s Presidency Threatens to Undo Progress Working Women Have Made

Emily Martin, general counsel and vice president for Workplace Justice at the National Women’s Law Center, says it’s encouraging to see Ivanka Trump, the President-elect’s daughter, speak out for equal pay and paid leave, most notably at the Republican National Convention. “Obviously [Ivanka] is an adviser who is important in this administration,” Martin says. “I think that helps, that at least someone with the president’s ear seems to have a commitment to these issues.”
