A senior software engineer at Google has been reported from couple of tech websites been fired after his written memo of 3,300 words was found of criticizing nature and which was leaked on social media, sparking wide protests.

The document of James Damore, named revealed by Reuters and Bloomberg, was shared across the internal networks of the search engine giant and it talks about biological causes being one of the reasons for women not capable of representing equally in the tech departments and leadership.

Reuters and Bloomberg further adds the Google employee has been fired for considering men’s higher driver for status in the memo and being of perpetuating gender stereotypes nature.

Sources citing former Google employee said several female employees at Google didn’t turn up to the company on Monday for being uncomfortable going back to work due to the written memo.

The former employee Kelly Ellis had quit Google in 2014 after being sexually harassed. She said the memo didn’t surprise her as she has seen such written documents shared on internal message earlier when she was a Google employee.
