Chicks before pricks, Ivanka Trump.

The First Daughter is still trying to brand herself as a champion of women while silently standing by her father's controversial policies.

Which is exactly why one of the women cited in the 35-year-old's new book, Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success, doesn't want to be a part of Ivanka's hypocritical narrative!

Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code, was praised in the book as a woman who "personally witnessed the gender gap in computing classes and set out to do something about it."

Saujani created a non-profit organization devoted to closing the gender gap in the tech industry and teaching women how to code — and now, she's schooling Ivanka on what it means to be "complicit"!

After the book was released on Tuesday, Saujani tweeted to Ivanka that she doesn't want to be included in the book as long as the businesswoman stands by Donald Trump's administration. She shared:

Barack Obama Dated THIS Woman At The Same Time As Michelle — And Asked Her To Marry Him First!

Barack Obama has lived the most transparent existence of any president we've ever had. He's had to with all the scrutiny, including racist investigations into his birthplace and religion.

So what can a new biography reveal about the former POTUS? Barack's first lady — and no, we don't mean Michelle Obama!

In his new book Rising Star: The Making Of Barack Obama, Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer David J. Garrow found an ex-girlfriend Obama basically omitted from his own account, Dreams From My Father (she and two other exes were combined into a single character for the sake of brevity).

But apparently this relationship was a VERY big deal at the time as Barack even reportedly asked her to marry him!

Sheila Miyoshi Jager is forthcoming about her relationship with the future Prez in her interview with the author, recounting their time living together in Chicago, meeting one another's parents, and even their serious marriage talks.

In fact, Sheila says she only declined his first proposal because her mother thought she was still too young at just 23 years old.

But the relationship ended for other reasons; the couple's downfall seemed to parallel Barack's political rise:

13 Reasons Why is Netflix's newest hit — but also maybe its most controversial ever.

The story of a teenage girl's suicide has been alternately praised for its unflinching look at the very real factors that lead teens to self harm AND blasted for glorifying suicidal behavior.

Canadian schools have warned parents of its graphic content and banned teachers from discussing it with their students. Paris Jackson called the show "extremely triggering."

So what does exec producer Selena Gomez think of all this controversy? It's pretty much what she was going for. She told the AP:

"We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what Jay Asher created, was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story, and I think that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, that's going to come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing. I'm overwhelmed. I'm very proud of it."

Whatever your reaction to the show, it is getting a lot more people to talk about the problem of teen suicide.

What do YOU think of 13 Reasons Why??

With her celebrity, Caitlyn Jenner could have been such an amazing agent for change in the world. She certainly could have altered the perception of transgender people in the United States for the better.

Unfortunately, old habits die hard and bad habits even harder.

The former Olympian's conservative beliefs, such as once being against same-sex marriage, have muddied any message she could have sent. And then she voted for Donald Trump.

While she may be disappointed with his presidency so far, that hasn't encouraged the KUWTK star to keep her distance; she met with White House officials on Thursday, though the reason for her visit was kept rather vague. A rep confirmed:
