Ivanka Trump Used Toni Morrison Quote On Slavery To Describe Her Struggles – People are Livid

Ivanka Trump’s new book, “Women Who Work,” is made up of different quotes from a wide range of sources. Her book has been criticized by many and some are less than thrilled to have been included..

Critics have said that the book offers very generic advice for women in the workforce and that it features out-of-context quotes intended to be inspirational.

One quote in particular has people talking, and not in a good way. Ivanka used a Toni Morrison quote about the brutal psychological impact of slavery to describe the challenges of women in management.

The quote reads:

“Freeing yourself was one thing; claiming ownership of that freed self was another.”

Morrison used that phrase in his novel “Beloved,” which describes the psychological challenges that former slaves faced after escaping to the North

NPR’s Annalisa Quinn reviewed Ivanka’s book, stating that she “strips the quote of its context and instead inserts it into a chapter on time management.”

” Are you a slave to your time or the master of it?” Ivanka writes. “Despite your best intentions, it’s easy to be reactive and get caught up in returning calls, attending meetings, answering e-mails.”

Social media users reacted to Ivanka’s use of Morrison’s quote.
