We teamed up with Amy Poehler's Smart Girls to ask you who your #sciencewoman heroes are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_1zW...

Special thanks to everyone who sent in a video for this project. We are blown away and inspired by your responses! We received way too many videos to feature them all here, but you can watch them all in full on this playlist, which we'll keep updating as we get more: http://bit.ly/1BLwuSF
