for mad women scientists, of which there are few thre are two
examples, but they are stereotypic
 
Devil Doll - a lovely depiction of madness gone over its altruistic
edge in the early section
 
also The Kindred, generally nasty scientist mother who has been
cloning her son, ( I think this is the one i mean, but it is a
cronenberg)
 
as for non-mad women scientists there was been a whole load
recently,
 
contact
chain reaction
the peacemaker
mimic
the saint
the daughter in Lost in Space
 
and I'm sure there's more
 
i would just add the woman in Making mr right isn't a scientist,
she's the pr specialist
