Girls Who Code CEO To Ivanka: ‘Don’t Use My Story Unless You…Stop Being Complicit’
Ivanka Trump used Reshma Saujani’s story in her new book, “Women Who Work,” but got some harsh criticism from Saujani.
Saujani, the founder and CEO of the nonprofit group Girls Who Code took to Twitter to call out Ivanka for using her story. The CEO called Donald Trump’s daughter “complicit,” an insult she’s heard many times before.
“.@ivankatrump don’t use my story in #WomenWhoWork unless you are going to stop being #complicit #askivanka,” Saujani wrote on Twitter.

Ivanka has received countless criticism for speaking for her father’s more controversial policies, while at the same time touting herself as a role model for women.
Trump has diminished women countless times. He even gloated about groping women because he’s rich.
Ivanka’s new book is set to be released on Tuesday. It focuses on her experiences in the workplace and shares the stories of other women in business.
Girls Who Code was founded in 2012. It’s a group dedicated in increasing the number of women in the tech industry.
