These Are the 10 Highest-Paid Women CEOs—And Their Salaries
Despite the fact that only a fraction of the world's CEOs are women, new research from executive data firm Equilar show that female bosses are out-earning their male counterparts in a big way. According to new stats, the median pay for a woman CEO was almost $18 million last year, while male chief executive officers were worth $10.5 million.
In saying that, only 17 of the 341 CEOs analyzed by Equilar were women, so the data is largely impacted by high-earners like Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer (pictured above), who's worth a whopping $36 million each year. Of the 10 highest paid CEOs on the list, Mayer was also the only woman, with the next highest-paid woman, Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo Inc, taking home $22.2 million.
