This is an award in the Monte Carlo Rally - so called because it is awarded to the highest placed lady driver. The award was first made in 1927, to Mildred Mary Bruce, although she was not the first female driver to contest the event. An official Ladies’ Prize continued to be given until 2000. By then, rallying had become almost completely professionalised and the number of female drivers entering each year was very small.

The winners include record eight-time winner Pat Moss-Carlsson, six-time winner Isolde Holderied as well as many others. The name literally means "ladies' cup" translated from French.
