Women chief executives earned big bucks last year, but there are still very few of them running the world's largest companies.
The median pay for a female CEO was $13.1 million last year, up 9% from 2015, according to an analysis by executive data firm Equilar and the Associated Press. By comparison, male CEOs earned $11.4 million, also up 9%.
But the number of women in CEO roles has barely budged. Just 6% of the top-paid CEOs in the U.S. last year were women, according to the Equilar and AP analysis, a slight increase from about 5% in 2015 and 2014.
The highest-paid woman was Virginia Rometty of IBM, bumping out Yahoo's Marissa Mayer from the top spot.
