From the September 1918 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Biblical history fails to mention the name of the first daughter born to the human family, or to give her father's name; and in its early narrative, covering a period of over two thousand years, the word daughter is rarely used, except in genealogical records of "sons and daughters. " This omission no doubt had its origin in error of belief regarding woman's God-given place in the order of creation; for God has no nameless offspring.
