While people are quick to characterize Silicon Valley as dominated by young men in hoodies, a band of women are emerging to make the industry their own.

More and more women are at the helm of high-tech companies that are changing the world with innovations ranging from new ways to turn algae into fuel to robots that help children through physical therapy.

As part of our Women in Tech series, we've picked ten female CEOs in the tech world to watch--women who are all using tech to radically change the way things are done in a range of industries.

Take a look at the leaders in the slideshow below.

Brooke Moreland, CEO of Fashism
1 of 11
Before launching Fashism, a web community that gives users real-time style advice, Moreland had to get her feet wet. While working full time as a reality TV editor, she worked on her brainchild at night before finally leaving her job to focus on Fashism, which launched in 2009. Fashism takes the idea that plenty of people online not only have the style smarts but the kind of objectivity you just can't get from a boyfriend and converts it into an easy to use website. It recently raised $1 million in funding from supporters including Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, Nina Garcia, a judge on Project Runway, and well-known VC Ron Conway, among others.
