Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton are more than accomplished women, campaign surrogates and friends, as Chelsea reaffirmed on “The View” last month. They are members of a rising generation of female voters. How well do these young women represent their peers in demographic terms? And what do we know about the lifestyles and attitudes of the emerging female electorate?

In her first appearance on the campaign trail since giving birth to her second child in June, Chelsea Clinton didn’t hold back when asked about Donald Trump‘s recent comments that her mother doesn’t look presidential, blasting the comments as “misogynistic.”

Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump have been friendly for years, but when it comes to the presidential campaign, it’s family first.

In the lull between last Christmas and New Year’s Day, Chelsea Clinton, three months pregnant, was perusing the Science section of the New York Times, when she came across a story on a surge of Brazilian babies born with a rare birth defect. “The increase in microcephaly—an incurable form of brain damage—has been blamed on an epidemic of the Zika virus, which was unknown in Latin America before this year,” the article said. Worried, Chelsea immediately got in touch with her mom to alert her, and pushed her to get the campaign to develop a policy proposal to address what was then a small outbreak of an obscure disease. Soon, the Clinton campaign was advocating the development of a rapid diagnostic test, a vaccine—and getting down to “mosquito abatement.”

Just as she assumed a lead role in her father’s foundation and became a chief campaign surrogate for her mother, Chelsea Clinton is willing to step up should her parents need her if they return to the White House, according to the former first daughter’s friends.

America’s first image of Chelsea Clinton was as a curly-haired preteen girl with braces who shied away from the public stage while her father was president in the 1990s. More than two decades later, the now 36-year-old mother of two will voluntarily step into the spotlight to introduce her own mother as her family seeks a return to the White House.

“There’s this narrative,” said America Ferrera, “about young women not being inspired by Hillary. And that’s just not the case.” At least it wasn’t in Hollywood on Sunday evening, where a predominantly young female crowd gathered to hear Ferrera, Lena Dunham and Chelsea Clinton discuss their support for Hillary Clinton.

When precisely did Chelsea Clinton complete her transition from a White House kid whom journalists agreed to treat as off-limits to a public figure deserving of the full scrutiny of the press corps? The unsettling answer to the question appears to be, “Not yet.” The soon-to-be 36-year-old occupies the status of an American princess—Diana on the Potomac, if you will. The press covers her, of course, attempting to ask her substantive questions, but mostly she exists to grace the covers of magazines—Fast Company and Elle most recently—and be treated to lighter-than-air puff pieces.
