The Journal of Women's History is pleased to announce the recipient of the first biennial prize for the best article manuscript in the field of women's history authored by a graduate student. The inaugural award of $3,000 has been given to Nimisha Barton of Princeton University for "'French or Foreign, so Long as They Be Mothers': Immigrant Women, Pronatalism, and the Politics of Welfare in Interwar Paris." This article follows the shifting discourse on welfare policy for women and mothers in the interwar period in France and will reshape the historiographical discussion of this era by highlighting the experiences of this overlooked group. In addition to its originality, Barton's article is a model of careful research and clarity of argument.
Honorable mention goes to Gabriela Aceves Sepulveda of the University of British Columbia, for "Interruptions in the Archive: Feminisms, Secret Documents, and Archival Practices in Post-1968 Mexico." We thank the selection committee of Professors Durba Ghosh, Pamela Scully, and Judith P. Zinsser for their work. [End Page 204]
