marilyn ross memorial book prize

The Marilyn Ross Memorial Book Prize in Women’s and Gender History was established in 2014 in memory of my grandmother. Hanna and I award the prize annually for a notable individual junior and senior project in women’s and/or gender history submitted to the Massachusetts History Day competition, at the Regional (North Shore) and State levels. The winners are awarded a book selected to complement their chosen topic.
