The Journal of Women's History is pleased to announce the winner and runner-up for its bi-annual best article prize for 2017–2018:


Michelle King's “Margaret Sanger in Translation: Gender, Class, and Birth Control in 1920s China,” (Fall 2017) was awarded the $1000 monetary prize. The JWH prize committee noted that this article "creates a sardonically humorous, deftly written, multi-layered analysis of Margaret Sanger’s birth control activism and the gendered ramifications of the feminist icon’s imperialist worldview."


Jonas Roelens's “A Woman Like Any Other: Female Sodomy, Hermaphroditism, and Witchcraft in Seventeenth-Century Bruges,” (Winter 2017) was selected as the runner-up.


On behalf of the Journal of Women's History prize committee and editorial board, congratulations to the winners!
