Ivanka Trump pledges to bring ‘prosperity’ to women in the developing world – but her plans don’t add up


In her latest bid to prove that she is hard at work empowering women, Ivanka Trump is launching a new programme to help 50m women in the developing world by 2025.

She announced the Woman’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative on Thursday, which promised to give $50m in USAID money to help 50m women.

But shortly after the announcement people pointed out one major flaw with the initiative – the money amounts to only one dollar per woman.


It’s fair to say that experts weren’t particularly impressed with Ivanka’s ‘1 woman, 1 dollar’ approach to international development.
