But, with the latest report from FindTheCompany on the earnings of female CEOs, there's still a lot to celebrate. The list of the ten highest-paid chief officers reads like a who's who of successful women, not to mention the fact that many still clear more than $10 million a year.
Not surprisingly, the top spot goes to Marissa Mayer, the well-known head of Yahoo. Her annual compensation package is worth a whopping $36.6 million — in other words, some serious dough. Following close behind is Irene Rosenfeld with $28.8 million, who oversees Mondelez International (formerly Kraft). Rounding out the top five are the CEOs from Annaly Capital Management, Children's Place, and IBM, all bringing in over $16 million. While these women are still falling behind their male counterparts, it's still worth throwing out some major props. (Business Insider)
