Let 8c325612684d41304b9751c175df7bcc0f61f64f be the number of women selected. Then, the number of men not selected is 086e16cc74cd9991dae5424271faca1e1e8ef694. Note that the sum of the number of women selected and the number of men not selected is constant at edf074831eb5bc9e61d6d6e09f525a86e3068f6a. Each combination of women selected and men not selected corresponds to a committee selection. Since choosing 12 individuals from the total of 23 would give 8c325612684d41304b9751c175df7bcc0f61f64f women and ae1c5f1333e1ccb0516c3847432f79cf79464d6f men, the number of committee selections is d25c81076bc20f1503885bced502be0a8acad874. The answer is a63ad4ee113048062513f02fbf606e6a1040416f.
