Could the election of Donald Trump as President be the “best thing that has happened to feminism” in a long time?
Sallie Krawcheck recently penned an article called “Why Trump Could Actually Be Good for Women in Business.” Krawcheck is the CEO of Ellevest, a digital investment platform for women. She is also Chair of Ellevate Network, a global professional women’s network.
“I’m hearing from more and more women that we must ‘put on our big girl pants’ and do this ourselves,” Krawcheck writes.
Krawcheck points to “the Billy Bush conversation, the recent New York Times OpEd on ‘bro talk on Wall Street,’ even the light sentence for Brock Turner” as proof that more progress hasn’t been made for younger women.
“This is some proof that we can’t rely on others to fight this battle for us, and so we must redouble our efforts,” she writes.
