ABSTRACT
This article reflects on crediting women for being the mother of the human race. Parentage has been transformed as a basis of inferiority for women, and this is the reason why lineage has been reckoned, almost everywhere, through the male line only, ignoring women. As a rule, there forms no living descendants in the male line from the great men of England.
