The Editorial Board of the Journal of Women’s History is proud to announce the fourth biennial prize for the best article manuscript in the field of women’s history authored by a graduate student. Article manuscripts in any chronological and geographical area are welcome. Manuscripts should not exceed 10,000 words, including endnotes, and should follow the University of Chicago Manual of Style. Please also submit an abstract of no more than 150 words that summarizes the argument and significance of the work. We seek work that has broad significance for the field of women’s history in general, addresses issues that transcend the particulars of the case, and breaks new ground conceptually or methodologically.

The winning author will receive a $500 cash prize, and the article will be considered, after a further process of review and revision, for publication in the Journal of Women’s History.  The prize will be awarded at the 2020 Berkshire Conference of Women’s History.
