And here is the list of women named in the Book of Mormon:
Abish, Isabel, Sariah (Eve, Mary, and Sarah are also named, but these are Biblical women).
The following books in the Book of Mormon, which supposedly span over a thousand years of ancient American history, neglect to name even one woman:
Jacob, Enos, Jarom, Omni, Words of Mormon, Mosiah, Helaman, 3 Nephi, 4 Nephi, Mormon, Ether, Moroni.
Most Book of Mormon authors don’t even name their own wives and daughters!
So what best explains this dearth of women in the Book of Mormon?
