Morocco Committed to Advancing Land Rights for Women – Ivanka Trump
“On my last #WGDP trip, Morocco committed to changing laws to advance land rights for women and have now legally formalized these major reforms!
“Congratulations to the Moroccan government and its citizens!,” Ivanka said in a tweet on Friday.
Ivanka Trump visited Morocco last November to promote the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative launched early last year by the White House to help women in the developing world.
The visit was a chance to “reiterate the US appreciation to the leadership of His Majesty King Mohammed VI on critical issues such as peace and security in the Middle East, as well as to ensure peace, stability and development for Africa,” Ivanka had said while in Morocco.
Ivanka’s first visit to Morocco echoed positively in the media. Elegantly dressed in a Moroccan traditional attire, Ivanka was welcomed by housewives, widows and other women who are benefiting from new laws that allow them to own land.
Ivanka Trump is a senior White House adviser who works on women’s issues and has sought through the WGDP initiative to encourage developing countries to help women build wealth and financial independence by owning land or other property.
