There's a tectonic shift taking place when it comes to power and gender dynamics today, and it's long overdue. The downfall of Harvey Weinstein instigated a movement — women are uniting and fighting to topple the destructive systems that have kept them oppressed and silent for so long.
It's a beautiful thing to watch. Women in Hollywood, ostensibly some of the most influential women in the world, have banded together to lift up and defend women who aren't as privileged as they are. Time's Up is an exemplary instance of powerful women using their power for good.
Ivanka Trump is a clear example of a powerful woman wasting the immense privilege and potential she's been handed. When she tweeted her support of Oprah's incredible Golden Globes speech, my heart caught in my throat. Ivanka Trump doesn't get to say "Time's up." Ivanka Trump has repeatedly failed millions of women who really could have used her help. Ivanka Trump is not on our side and never will be.
Oprah's speech at the Golden Globes was moving and fierce and inspiring and critical and everything it should have been.

A full day after the Golden Globes, Ivanka decided to tweet out her support for Oprah's "empowering and inspiring speech."
Just saw @Oprah's empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes. Let’s all come together, women & men… https://t.co/RCPjxvaM1o— Ivanka Trump (@Ivanka Trump)1515466473.0
Who is going to tell her https://t.co/ptGRG5HiYH— Molly Knight (@Molly Knight)1515467967.0
And Ivanka's inability and/or unwillingness to recognize what she represents through her actions and inactions is indicative of the extreme privilege with which she walks through life.
Ivanka saying "Time's Up" doesn't just tell you something about her intelligence (or lack thereof); it tells you wh… https://t.co/23z6vKbpnX— Elizabeth Spiers (@Elizabeth Spiers)1515469059.0
It may seem obvious at this point, but the Trump family — Ivanka included — doesn't have the best interests of the American people at heart.
@IvankaTrump @Oprah When she was talking about corruption, she was talking about you and your family. Did you miss that?— Patriot Jane (@Patriot Jane)1515466588.0
She has occasionally "spoken out" against anti-semites or against sexual predators, but her words are always empty.
Remember when you spoke out against antisemitism while your father called Nazis fine people? This is... a lot like… https://t.co/mqPcGBFyAQ— The Volatile Mermaid (@The Volatile Mermaid)1515509771.0
This is a joke, but it's also scarily close to the truth:If you haven't seen Get Out, earmuffs! Because there are about to be spoilers... Rose is evil. She isn't even just a complicit player in her family's disgusting scheme; she is an active participant. And psst, here's the thing: So is Ivanka.
Alyssa Milano craftily brought up the essential problem with Ivanka's support of Oprah's speech when she suggested she donate to the cause:
@IvankaTrump @Oprah Great! You can make a lofty donation to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund that is available to s… https://t.co/OsxpPGwD03— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa Milano)1515467758.0
And we can say this because it's been proven time and again.

Ivanka Trump didn't learn to change her ways when she received intense backlash for her sexual harassment speech in Japan.
via: Getty ImagesYes, that's right: Ivanka talked about sexual harassment in the workplace at the World Assembly of Women. Needless to say, it did not go well.
In case you need more proof, there was that time she supported ending a policy that worked to close the gender pay gap.This was mere months after she tweeted her support for Equal Pay Day. Ivanka Trump is a hypocrite of the highest order.
She also doesn’t know what “complicit” means https://t.co/eR8NxONTmB— eve peyser (@eve peyser)1508857318.0
