First Daughter Ivanka Trump is out with a new book aimed at encouraging women to redefine success.  It’s called Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success and is an extension of her efforts during the campaign to build her brand as a champion for women. During the 2016 race, she called for paid maternity leave and more recently has pushed for a child care tax credit for families. But while she’s received praise for being outspoken on women’s issues, some have criticized her motives. So is Ivanka Trump the new feminist icon? Complicit? Or somewhere in between? Jennifer Nassour, former chair of the state Republican party; WGBH contributor and Boston Globe business columnist Shirley Leung; and former communications director for Governor Deval Patrick, Jesse Mermell joined Jim Braude for the conversation.

Boston Symphony Orchestra music director Andirs Nelsons joined Jim to talk about throwing out the first pitch at Fenway and some old footage we dug up.
