UVa Graduate, Donor Criticized for Comments


May 8, 2013

Paul Tudor Jones II is under fire for his comments concerning women in trading, at a panel held by the University of Virginia in April.

The Washington Post reports that Jones, a 1976 graduate, was answering a question from the audience about why there are so few women in the trading business.

Jones replied with a personal observation that many women opt out of the career after having children.

Officials at UVa say Jones immediately received complaints for his response.

Jones is a major benefactor to the University, having donated the money to build the John Paul Jones Arena, which is named for his father.
