In much the same way that historic American documents say "man", this similarly REALLY means "mankind". Women have the same rights as men within Scientology. Sex IS mentioned ( "...inalienable rights to the creation of their own kind"), and I don't believe this was intended to be a prioritized list of any kind (it would probably be numbered if that were the case).
