Tudor Investment Corporation's Paul Tudor Jones found himself in the middle of a firestorm of his own making on Thursday when the Washington Post published a video of a speech he gave last month. During that speech, the hedge fund billionaire told the audience that there are not as many great women investors or traders as men. The reason? According to Tudor, women who have children can't be successful as traders. But successful female traders disagree.

Susan Shaffer Solovay, founder and CEO of Pomegranate Capital, and Jacki Zehner, the first woman trader and youngest woman to be made partner of Goldman Sachs, explain.
