The average compensation for female CEOs in the S&P 500 was $14.2 million, 43% above average compensation for male CEOs, according to a Bloomberg analysis. Pay for women CEOs was led by a $47.2 million package for Yahoo's Carol Bartz. But the managing editor of ForbesWoman says the Bloomberg analysis is flawed. She points out only 16 women are included in the figures compared with 484 men. She also notes several top female CEOs, including PepsiCo's Indra Nooyi, earn less than their male counterparts at competitors.
