Women Who Work is a 2017 book by Ivanka Trump.[1] A self-help book intended to help women achieve self-actualization, it deals with work-life balance among other topics. It includes guest essays and several businesspeople, political figures, and self-help authors are quoted.[1]

Reception

The book received mixed reviews from critics.[2][3][4] Jennifer Senior, writing for The New York Times, said that while the book's intended audience is initially presumed to be a wide range of women, class bias emerges later in the book. For example, Trump classifies grocery shopping as a task that is neither urgent nor important, and cites not being able to treat herself to a massage as an indicator of how busy she was during her father's 2016 presidential campaign, thus revealing herself to be out of touch with working-class women.[1] In the Associated Press, however, Catherine Lucey said that the book shows Trump has become a more serious writer since her previous self-help book, the 2009 The Trump Card.[5] Less charitably, NPR book reviewer Annalisa Quinn described the writing as "a sea of blandities", and that "reading it feels like eating scented cotton balls".[6]
