Top Ten High-Paid Women in Corporate America
Besides those women who have inherited incredible amounts of money or those made rich by their deceased husbands, there are those that work hard for their money in high profile jobs.
According to Fortune , the top ten high-paid women in corporate America are:
Safra Catz, President of Oracle, $42.4 million year You Go Girl!
Linda Chen, President of Wynn International Marketing, Limited, 23.9 million year
Sharen Turney, EVP, President and CEO of Victoria Secret, $20.3 million year
Wellington Denahan-Norris, Vice Chairman, Chief Investment Office and COO of Annaly Capital Management, 2008 Total compensation $20 million year
Andrea Jung, Chairman and CEO of Avon Products, 2008 Total compensation $19.5 million year
Ann Livermore, EVP, Technology Solutions Group, Hewlett-Packard, $17.3 million year
Irene Rosenfeld, Chairman and CEO of Kraft Foods, $16 million year
Candice Bagby, Former SEVP and Consumer Services Group Head, Regions Financial, $15. 2 million year
Patricia Woertz, Chairman, President and Ceo, Archer Daniels Midland, $15 million year
Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO, PepsiCo, $14.9 million year
These pale in comparison to others who are considered the world’s richest women. Christy Walton, who is worth $20 billion is the widow of Wal-mart founder John Walton (he passed away in a plane crash in 2005). Alice Walton, daughter of the late John Walton is second worth $19.5 billion. But, nonetheless, their salaries are remarkable.
Here are some great sites for working mothers:
Moms tired of working
What about women who choose to give up a career and stay home with their children? Do you consider it a shame if a career woman decides to give it all up for her family? Who can put a price on the worth of a child?
Seeking wealth is good if it does not neglect the more important thing, the future of our family and nation. I am not judging women who have chosen to pursue careers. In fact, I have worked most of my married life, even while my children were young (at least part time). The economy makes it difficult to live on only one income these days.
I do admire women who are willing to give up the praise of the world to raise their children in a wholesome manner. It is very hard being a stay-at-home mother. Many mothers are career women and good mothers too, but that is really stretching them thin.
Here are a few thoughts on mothering.

The phrase "working mother" is redundant. ~Jane Sellman
She never quite leaves her children at home, even when she doesn't take them along. ~Margaret Culkin Banning
With what price we pay for the glory of motherhood. ~Isadora Duncan
