According to POLITICO, the first daughter who requested the meeting to discuss the GOP's plan to defund the organization.

"The main thing that Cecile Richards was doing was explaining that the money doesn't actually go to abortions," Laguens said to POLITICO. "We get reimbursed the same way a hospital does. We were clearing up misinformation about how this works."

Richards prominently backed former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, making the meeting between the president's daughter-turned-federal employee and Planned Parenthood head even more noteworthy.

Ivanka Trump and Cecile Richards share the distinction of being political daughters. Cecile Richards is the daughter of former Texas Gov. Ann Richards, and has centered her own career path around women's issues and empowerment.

Ivanka Trump has also focused her White House efforts on women's leadership and empowerment since her father's presidential inauguration. She helped coordinate recent meetings between Merkel and German business leaders during the chancellor's U.S. visit, sat in on a women's business initiative discussion with Candian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. She is also slated to attend a Berlin summit on the gender employment gap and the empowerment of women -- the W20 summit -- later this year.

President Trump's eldest daughter continues to serve as a prominent figure in her father's White House, and it was recently announced that she would be assuming a role as an unpaid adviser in her father's administration -- making her an official government employee.

In addition to her meeting with Richards, Ivanka Trump has reportedly also met with other progressive leaders in the women's movement -- including National Women's Law Center co-president Marcia Greenberger and senior adviser to the National Partnership for Women and Family Judy Lichtman.
