Kim-Mai Cutler has a good writeup of the 7 female co-founders in the current YCombinator class of ~150 people, representing 5 companies out of 66: http://techcrunch.com/2012/03/30/ladies-of-y-combinator/

Three are McKinsey consultants. Two are starting couture companies. Several are interested in helping people find jobs. One is a civil engineer.

One thought kept crossing my mind as I read the article.

Where are the women who code? Where are the women CTOs?

They're not applying to YC, since the YC process is gender-blind.

The answer is "not enough" to the Quora question, How many women has Y Combinator funded?
