Shortly after the second Women’s March, Ivanka Trump changed her Twitter bio to remove a section about advocating for the “empowerment of women and girls,” sparking a swift and strong reaction on the social media platform.
Here’s what the bio used to say:

The bio change may not be directly related to the Women’s March. Trump, who advocated for more help for child care during the campaign, can cross that off her checklist as a presidential adviser, since the Republican tax reform bill in December expanded the child tax credit.

Here’s how some on the internet responded to the change:
