Women Rule as Bloomberg’s Women.com 30 Index Soars

Led by Hewlett-Packard (Carly Florina, CEO), the nation’s 13th largest company, the Bloomberg list of 30 top women-run companies has far exceeded the Dow and demonstrates that women executives are in no danger of not being taken seriously.

The list of the top 30 companies run by women also includes such notables as Avon (Andrea Jung, CEO), World Wrestling Federation Entertainment (Linda McMahon, CEO), Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (Martha Stewart, CEO), eBay (Meg Whitman, CEO), and Advent Software (Stephanie DiMarco, CEO).

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is made up of 30 companies which, together, are worth about 25 percent of the total value of the New York Stock Exchange. The Bloomberg Women.com 30 index has been outperforming the Dow consistently since January of this year.
