Off-Stage of Women’s Empowerment Conference, Ivanka Trump’s Security Team Made Japanese History

On Friday, First Daughter Ivanka Trump took to the podium at the World Assembly for Women in Japan to spotlight issues surrounding women in the workplace.

“As a professional with three young children, and despite the help I was able to have at home, I, too, have experienced the struggles of balancing competing demands of work and family,” The Guardian reported she said.

Trump added that she’s “far more exhausted” after spending a weekend with her young children than she is on Friday nights “after a long week of work at the office.”

The first daughter also addressed the issue of inexcusable sexual harassment in professional environments and said, “All too often our workplace culture fails to treat women with appropriate respect.”

While Trump spoke about women’s empowerment, behind the scenes, a team of powerful women made her safety their No. 1 priority. According to The Asahi Shimbun, Tokyo’s Metropolitan Police Department’s first all-female security team was charged with protecting the first daughter.

Instead of the traditional riot gear, the team wore black suits. An officer in charge of the security plan told The Asahi Shimbun the “cultivated look” was implemented to “suit the occasion.”

CNN reported that the team was originally put together for the 2020 Summer Olympic games, and that using only women officers is often seen as less “intrusive.” Trump also reportedly had her primary secret service detail as well, but former agent Jonathan Wackrow explained local law enforcement agents play an “essential role.”
