For the 33 women on the list whose comp data is publicly available, the median pay package came in at $12.1 million. That beats the typical CEO’s take: According to a study by Equilar and the AP, which looked at 340 CEOs of S&P 500 companies, the median 2014 pay was $10.6 million.

In total, those 33 executive took in a whopping $522 million last year—with the top 10 women making a total of nearly $300 million.
