Ivanka Trump unveiled an effort aimed at helping 50 million women in the developing world get ahead economically over the next six years. On Thursday, the White House officially launched the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, a government-wide project led by the senior adviser and daughter to President Donald Trump. The initiative will involve the State Department, the National Security Council and other agencies. The President previewed the launch during his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, describing it as “part of our commitment to improving opportunity for women everywhere”. Ivanka Trump, who will attend the Munich Security Conference next week to promote the project, stressed that she sees this as a national security priority.
