Thanks for doing this about women in science. I'd like to nominate Eunice Newton Foote, who was the first to discover the heating properties of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in 1856. The Society for Physics did a great podcast on her. She also was a signer of the Seneca Falls Declaration of Sentiments in 1848 (she is #5 just below Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her husband Elisha is #4 just above Frederick Douglas). Oh, COI, my wife is related to her through the Foote family in America. Best wishes Dan
