The top 15 highest-paid female chief executives in America in 2014: Women CEOs

Unsurprisingly, Marillyn Hewson, the head of defense giant, Lockheed-Martin, was the highest-paid chief executives in America in the Wall Street Journal study. She took the No. 11 spot on that list and the No. 1 spot on the female CEOs list.

Hewson compensation was almost $5 million more that of the next-highest earner on the list – Carol Meyrowitz of discount retailer TJX Companies.

Still, there is a big caveat: There are far fewer female CEOs than males among 300 large U.Scompanies with at least $9.1 billion in revenue. The study of 300 CEOs included 15 women.
