CELEBRITY FRIDAY: America's Highest Paid Female CEO Is Transgender

Martine Rothblatt is the United States highest paid female CEO, but since she is a transgender woman (i.e. she was born a man and transitioned in 1994 at age 40) what does this say about the glass ceiling? In 2013, Rothblatt was paid $38 million as the CEO of United Therapeutics, a biotech firm she founded. Rothblatt has a Ph.D., J.D. and M.B.A. and previously founded other well-known companies such as Sirius Radio and GeoStar.

Look at this interesting interview with Dr. Rothblatt.
