A social media post shared by Ivanka Trump to mark the end of Women’s History Month may not have gotten the reaction the first daughter was expecting.

Like her stepmother, first lady Melania Trump — whose post kicking off March as Women’s History Month sparked responses calling her a “trophy wife” — the senior White House adviser is catching flak not only for her father’s off-color comments about women, but also for his mockery of important scientific issues like climate change.

On Sunday, President Trump‘s oldest daughter marked the conclusion of Women’s History Month but noted that “every month is a good month to celebrate and encourage women pursuing an education, a career and the fulfillment of their individual dreams!”


A video accompanying the post shows a series of young girls and women working with computers, robots and various machinery to demonstrate the importance of supporting STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) opportunities for all. One girl at the start of the video appears to be assembling a makeshift wind turbine. Just days ago, the president, who has mocked climate change proposals like the Green New Deal, took aim at wind energy during a rally in Michigan.

Although conservatives — including brother Donald Trump Jr.‘s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, who hailed her as an “inspiration to so many women” — have called the first daughter a “true feminist,” many have accused her of condoning her father’s controversial behavior. As such, her post calling for the empowerment of women didn’t go over very well.

Critics also cited her father’s policies and accused the 37-year-old of not truly understanding what it means to work hard.









Still, many appreciated her message.



Trump probably could have seen the backlash coming. Her Women’s History Month tweet last year also riled up critics, as did a post marking Black History Month in February. Many commenters pointed to her father’s support of racist birther conspiracies.
