Ivanka Trump celebrated the passage of the Women’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment Act out of a Senate committee today. The bipartisan bill which “prioritizes women’s economic empowerment and highlights the financial tools, resources, and rights necessary for women to advance,” will now go to the full Senate for a vote.
According to the International Center for Research on Women, “the bill brings attention and government resources to the advancement of women as they start and grow businesses, expand their earnings and savings, and bring greater prosperity to themselves, their households, and their communities.”
After the bill passed the committee, Ivanka tweeted:
“An exciting moment to witness the #WEEEAct passing out of committee and moving to consideration by the full Senate. Thank you @SenBobCorker @ChrisCoons @SenatorCardin @SenatorMenendez @JohnBoozman @SenatorIsakson @marcorubio @SenCoryGardner @SenatorShaheen for your leadership!”

Seeing that the bill is supported by those on both sides of the aisle, you’d think libs would be happy. Apparently not.
Here are a few of the responses Ivanka got.

Helping women succeed is a bad thing? Apparently it is if Ivanka is the one helping.
The Daily Signal reported on the WEEE Act:
“Most people agree that women deserve the chance to advance up the economic latter. The real question is, how can that be achieved?
What many don’t realize is that women’s advancement doesn’t require gender quotas or affirmative action. What’s needed, above all, is free market policies that allow women to make their own choices.
Ivanka Trump understands that as few do. Last month, she tweeted out her support for the Women’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment Act, a bill that emphasizes that a woman’s economic power has positive implications for both her family and her personal fulfillment.
Big progress on The Women’s Entrepreneurship & Economic Empowerment Act.
Thank you @SenBobCorker @JohnBoozman @ChrisCoons @SenatorCardin for moving the #WEEEAct to markup in the #SFRC. This bill advances gender equity globally + we are working closely w/ Congress on its passage!

Not surprisingly, empowering women with greater economic choice and control is really about advancing their economic freedom.
Countries that implement free market policies essentially enable women to make their own decisions. Because economic freedom creates greater opportunities for entrepreneurship, there are also more and better jobs for women available in free economies than in less-free economies.”
Ivanka left a great life behind to help her father, President Trump, help all Americans and make America great again. She’s working on something she’s passionate about, helping women succeed economically, and she’s attacked by the left for doing something good. I thought libs were all about empowering women? Now they’re attacking one who’s doing it. Talk about some hypocrisy.
Share this if you’re proud of what Ivanka is doing for America!
