Laura Heit's animated short about the paleontologist Mary Anning (mentioned in the first link) was one of the most inspiring and moving things that I saw last year.

Just to add, the In Our Time podcast had an episode on women in science during the Enlightenment several weeks ago. It was fantastic!
