Ivanka Trump, climate czar? Politico
Ivanka Trump apparently didn't get the message that she can not run the bare-naked blind trust of her father's business and also act as a champion of liberal causes from the 'first lady's lectern'.
This family is willing to make every promise and blur every line to the quarter of Americans who voted for them and the 75% who are totally traumatized at this point over the vicious, killer-instinct man who is our next president, While her daddy promises to not only defund Planned Parenthood, end abortion rights, severely curtain contraception rights and support personhood legislation based on his cabinet picks and vp Pence, his previously liberal and progressive daughter promises to step up for core progressive values like climate change.
This situation is becoming truly nauseating. Has anyone told Ivanka that she cannot have it all, even if she is a Trump? I used to like her. Today I see her as a two-faced, lacking in principles, spoiled rich girl. I wouldn't trust Ivanka Trump further than I can throw a football. That's about 10 feet. ~ Anne
"Dear Ivanka": New York City's Artists Appeal to Ivanka Trump, Peer to Peer The New Yorker
The people behind @dear_ivanka are two members of the New York City art world, Alison Gingeras, a curator, and Jonathan Horowitz, a multimedia artist, who post some of the entries themselves and receive others as submissions. They were inspired to address Ivanka directly because she is, in some ways, a member of their extended social circle. Where Donald Trump is known for commissioning oversized portraits of himself, and once complained that a black-and-white Andy Warhol depiction of Trump Tower “wasn’t color-coördinated,” Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, are avid collectors of contemporary art. “She frequents the art world, what’s sometimes called ‘the New York liberal bubble,’ ” Gingeras told me. “So we already know we can speak with her, and we want to appeal to her personal stakes.”
New York's Top Art Workers Address Ivanka in Anti-Trump Protest ArtNet News
Despite preparations for Art Basel Miami Beach pressing them in countdown mode, around 200 curators, artists, writers, and cultural workers in the contemporary art field joined in a march Monday night outside the Downtown Manhattan building owned by Jared Kushner. Kushner and his wife Ivanka trump live there with their three children.
“Dear Ivanka,” the protest’s title and name of the Instagram account sending messages to Ivanka Trump, drew notable artists like Cecily Brown, Rob Pruitt, Ryan McNamara, Jonah Freeman, Dan Colen, and Marilyn Minter; as well as writers and curators like Wendy Vogel, Brian Droitcour, Zoë Lescaze, David Velasco, Sarah Nicole Prickett, Alison Gingeras, Carolyn Ramo, and Fabiola Alondra, along with dealers and advisors Jay Gorney, Bill Powers, and Erin Goldberger, ArtNews reports.
Minter, who is currently the subject of a major retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum, told the New York Times of her involvement: “The culture changes, and fascism rears its ugly head every so often and that’s what’s happening now,” she said. “We wanted to do something to start to the ball rolling, to grow a protest, and we’re artists, so we know how to make posters.”

Melinda Gates: Unlike Ivanka Trump, A Truly Principled Woman
Melinda Gates Focuses the World's Largest Foundation on Gender WSJ Magazine
The commitment of the Gates Foundation to gender equity globally will surely take another uptick with the upcoming probability that the Trump administration will shut down all funding for Planned Parenthood internationally and in the US. The first order of the incoming Obama administration was to reverse the Bush administration's commitment that no taxpayer dollars fund contraception projects around the world. And Hillary Clinton as Secy of State created a new position, the Office of Global Women's Issues, to prioritize the drive for gender equality worldwide.
The strategic thinking, fact-based female half of the world's largest foundation knows: "“You empower a woman and you change the world. We know that if a woman is economically empowered inside her family, all kinds of magical things happen.”
In 2012, when the Gates Foundation announced its support of a $4.3 billion public-private partnership designed to give 120 million women in the world’s poorest countries voluntary access to contraceptives by 2020, Melinda chose multiple international public stages, ranging from a TED talk to the London Summit on Family Planning, with the goal of underlining her unyielding commitment to the issue of birth control. Her decision put the devoted Catholic at odds with her church, and she has never looked back. “We have 220 million women asking us for contraceptives, and we’re not delivering them,” Gates says. “Because of the political controversy, we backed away from the issue as a world. And yet women are dying in childbirth because they have child after child after child, and their children are dying because they’re coming too quickly.”
The Sustainable Fashion Site Where One Vogue Editor Is Doing All of Her Holiday Shopping Vogue.com
Customers and brands alike are increasingly demanding greater transparency in the making of our products. According to Rêve En Vert cofounder Natasha Tucker, consumers want to know want to know where our clothes and accessories are coming from and who’s making them. What are the labor conditions in factories? How does manufacturing these products impact the environment?
Tucker and her business partner Cora Hilts got a head start on that movement when they launched Rêve En Vert in 2013 as “a sustainable Net-a-Porter.”
Their vision for the website was simple: They’d stock clothing and accessories from designers who met one of their four tenets of sustainability (organic, remade, local, and fair) but didn’t sacrifice good design. Both women came from non-fashion backgrounds: Hilts studied environmental politics in London, where she first learned about the fashion industry’s impact on the earth. “In every other way, fashion is so forward-thinking, but it was doing a lot of harm,” she says. “I was starting to see a conscious consumer rising, someone who might eat organic food and care about wellness, and I thought, ‘Why isn’t there a beautiful, curated site that sells sustainable fashion where you don’t have to sacrifice style for ethics?’” At the same time, Tucker was working on an organic farm to learn about sustainable food, and draws similarities between food and fashion. “The organic food movement was a little stigmatized, but then people started caring more about [what they ate], and food options became available to them,” she explained. “I think fashion is the same way. More and more designers have been talking about it, and consumers are open to the conversation.”

Why You Should Skip the Beach and Head to Northern Thailand Instead Vogue
Northern Thailand is not the popular tourism destination as other parts of the country. Vogue takes us into The Golden Triangle which is the meeting point of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar. First stop is the Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle.
If you prefer vacation spots closely aligned with personal values, the hotel's program for rehabilitated elephants will grab your heart. Nearly all the elephants in residence have come to Chiang Rai after mistreatment elsewhere in the tourism industry.
Guests sign up for training in interacting with rescued elephants in a program created with the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation and their caregivers, called 'mahouts'.
My night driving into the darkness of a private home in Chiang Mai transformed from one of great worry to one of the five most significant nights of my life. Vogue takes me back with a sister stop at the Four Seasons Chiang Mai.
