Please add Fay Ajzenberg to this list. I had the privilige of learning classical mechanics from her in an undergraduate physics class at PENN.  A brilliant physicist who fought a prejudiced establishment until she finally persevered. She was a truly magnificent person and one of my favorite professors.

If you put A.E. Nother in the list, you should definitely have Sofia Kovalevskaya there too. And this being an electrical engineering website, it would be an awful shame if Ruby Payne-Scott was missing from it. She was a "founding mother" of radioastronomy.

Good article, note to readers you have to go to page 2 and click on the link to EDN to get to all the links to the individuals mentioned.

Another of many interesting scientists to add to the list is astronomer Jill Tarter (see Wikipedia) who, as a SETI researcher, was the basis for the main character in Carl Sagan's novel and subsequent film 'Contact'.
