I don’t get why people are saying critiquing Ivanka’s ideas about feminism is off topic or a ‘swipe’... it is the entire topic (ie Ivanka has a misguided conception of feminism and something in the vein of what Flanagan exhibits is what we should pursue).
If you disagree with it, then disagree with it, but don’t get all but hurt about it. Ivanka has been acting as the American delegate to ‘women’s empowerment’ type international events, written books (or at least had them ghost written for her) about women’s role in society, and otherwise presented herself/her ideas as feminist. She’s fair game for criticism.
The article is titled "Shalane Flanagan Effect" but the "entire topic" is Ivanka?
Very clever New York Times logic. How's that Hillary Effect working out for you? And I think you are giving Ivanka way too much credit. "American delegate to 'women's empowerment'" seems like a pretty big stretch to me.
