Ivanka Trump arrives in Japan ahead of United States president's visit

Japan rolls out sleek, all-female police squad to protect Ivanka

The Japanese are huge fans of Ivanka Trump's style, but the miniskirt she wore to a women's conference may have changed that.

Through his so-called womenomics policies - which seek to create "a society where women can shine", Abe said he has "used his efforts to the utmost" on the issues of child care and creating better working environments for women.

Ivanka Trump is scheduled to give a speech at a symposium on women's empowerment in Tokyo on Friday morning before having dinner with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that evening, according to the Japanese Foreign Ministry.

Wackrow recalls visits to Asian countries during his time on then-first lady Michelle Obama's detail where all-female units were also deployed.

Advocating for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, Trump said male-dominated sectors were "moving in the wrong direction".

Sometimes glancing at Abe sitting behind her on the stage, Trump praised the prime minister's efforts to promote women's participation in the workforce.

Ivanka Trump on Friday condemned sexual harassment in the workplace, telling an audience in Japan that such behavior "can never be tolerated".

"All too often, our workplace culture fails to treat women with appropriate respect", she said.

"This takes many forms, including harassment, which can never be tolerated", she continued. The first lady arrives in Japan on Sunday for a two-day visit with President Donald Trump; Ivanka Trump landed in Tokyo on Thursday.

"We opted for a more cultivated look to suit the occasion", an officer in charge of the security plan said.

In anticipation of President Trump's diplomatic tour through Asia, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department has assembled a female-only security team to protect Melania Trump when the First Family arrives in Japan. Trump will stop in Hawaii Friday for a ceremony at Pearl Harbor.
