Special prizes were set aside for the chess femmes: $500 for 1st; $250 for 2nd; $125 for 3rd.  Congratulations to the ladies!  I hope I did not overlook any of them, but sometimes it is very difficult to determine gender by name alone - and I don't have time to do a FIDE search and check on gender for each player.
