Top 10 Highest Paid Female Chief Executives

Here is the list of highest paid female chief executives of the 500 biggest US companies.

Irene B. Rosenfeld

Kraft Foods
One-year total compensation: $16.7 million

Rosenfeld, 56, ranks as the highest-paid female chief executive on our list. The past year, her fourth as CEO, landed Rosenfeld in the spotlight when she launched a hostile takeover of British candy maker Cadbury. The $19 billion deal angered U.K. lawmakers and drew the ire of Warren Buffett, whose Berkshire Hathaway is Kraft's largest investor. Nonplussed, Rosenfeld is moving forward and plans to use Cadbury's distribution network in India and Mexico to sell more Kraft products.

11 of the Deadliest Unmanned Killing Machines in USA Arsenal

Artificial intelligence has not yet reached a level that allows for a truly autonomous robot, but we have come far in the last 50 years. Robots are in use today, performing duties from vacuuming our floors to building cars, to fighting our wars for us. Only a handful of these machines possess any degree of autonomy, and even fewer of those (thankfully) are armed. The United States military stables the greatest arsenal of armed robots in the world, and has several major companies spearheading the advanced robotics research and development industry, with the singular stated goal of creating a better war machine. Because of this, more funding is moved each year into projects to develop new drones for military use, roboticise existing military hardware, or weaponize commercially available robotics.

World's highest paid politicians


As you might imagine, the release of Barack Obama's tax return by the White House last month caused quite a stir. Everyone knew the U.S. President earned the base Commander in Chief salary last year, but perhaps few were keen to Obama's potency as an author: according to his filings, the most powerful man in the world earned a total income of $5,505,409 in 2009, thanks in large part to proceeds from Obama's two best-selling books, The Audacity of Hope and Dreams from My Father.
Yet, this time of year, it's that base salary everyone is concerned with. As Canadians, tax season is the slot on the calendar when it's most appropriate to gripe over how much Prime Minister Stephen Harper earns. Where do the incomes of Harper and Obama rank on the world scale, you ask? Perks, stipends and expenses aside, Here is the 10 highest-paid politicians in the world, based on their taxpayer-funded salaries.
*All figures in USD.
10. Gordon Brown, Prime Minister, UnitedKingdom

Annual salary: $300,400
Brown, the Scottish-born leader of the U.K's Labour party, has always boasted that he's a man of the people. And it's that political motivation that now has the British P.M. in a fight to raise his nation's minimum wage from $8.97 to $11.75. Brown's salary, while nearly nine times more than the average English worker's income, is actually quite modest when compared to other world leaders. But, perhaps Brown has his sights set on future earnings: Tony Blair, the man Brown succeeded as P.M. in 2007, now makes as much as $600,000 per speaking engagement at events around the world.
