The early 1930s is sometimes referred to as the Super science period. While the various super science epics written by Campbell didn’tt have female characters, that wasn’t generally true for other authors (I will admit that there were enough scientist’s daughters for it to become a cliche).

And in _The Spirit Ring_ we have the magician’s daughter.
