One trillion dollars in stock market value. That's what just the 27 CEOs on the Fortune Most Powerful Women list control. But there are 24 more women on our 18th annual list—including a special bonus pick whose name you know already. Read on to see who made it—and who didn't.

As federal agencies have scaled back spending on information technology, Hewson has shifted the focus of the $45.6-billion-in-sales defense giant toward building military hardware. She’s also considering shedding Lockheed Martin’s government IT and technical services businesses. In July, to give the company its own helicopter-building capability, the 32-year Lockheed vet announced the $9 billion purchase of Sikorsky Aircraft, the maker of Black Hawk helicopters. Since taking over as CEO in 2013, Hewson has doubled Lockheed’s market cap.
