If THIS is War on Women, Where do I Enlist?

If this is the result of the War on Women, where do I enlist?

Holy cow, if we could only remove a few key women from the stats, women would be even more oppressed economically than men.

Unfortunately, when a woman makes over $80 million a year, it’s difficult to sell the whole gender pay gap meme.

From USA Today:

What glass ceiling? The gender gap appears to be closed, at least when it comes to CEO pay.

So far, 21 of the 22 current female CEOs in the Standard & Poor’s 500 have reported their latest compensation, including Yahoo (YHOO) CEO Marissa Mayer, defense contractor Lockheed Martin’s (LMT) Marillyn Hewson, and CEO Carol Meyrowitz of retailer TJX (TJX).  They were paid an average of $18.8 million during their latest fiscal years, according to a USA TODAY analysis of data from S&P Capital IQ and Bespoke Investment Group.  That far exceeds the average $12.7 million paid to the 455 current male CEOs in the S&P 500 that have reported compensation data for the same time period.

Apparently the “glass ceiling” has gone the way of the public pay phone and cigarette vending machines.
