Summary: Sir Michael Moritz comments that they'd hire tonnes of women if they could meet the standards of Sequoia Capital. Predictably, social media goes wild with emotional outbursts to all the 'misogyny' and how Moritz isn't working 'hard enough' to attract a more diverse workforce.

These people have no idea how opaque and competitive it is not only to work in a top VC firm but to become partner, no less. Most of them are successful startup founders, which explains why there are so few women to choose from.

Regardless of your views on venture capital and whether they actually provide values to their investors his next comments are pretty accurate:

“I think the issue begins in the high schools where women, particularly in America and also in Europe, tend to elect not to study the sciences when they’re 11 and 12. So suddenly the hiring pool is much smaller.”
