H.P. Blavatsky on "the divine soul within us."

On page 419, Vol. II of THE SECRET DOCTRINE,
H.P.B. writes about "...Buddhi - the divine Soul."
Five pages later, she again uses the phrase
"the divine soul" in the following passage:
"Those lives are countless, but the soul or spirit that animates us
throughout these myriads of existences is the same; and though 'the
book and volume' of the physical brain may forget events within the
scope of one terrestrial life, the bulk of collective recollections
can never desert the divine soul within us. Its whispers may be too
soft, the sound of its words too far off the plane perceived by our
physical senses; yet the shadow of events that were, just as much as
the shadow of the events that are to come, is within its perceptive
powers, and is ever present before its mind's eye."
In light of Frank's recent contention here on Theos-Talk, does
the passage above and the words "the divine soul within us" apply
only to those readers of the text who are "male"?!
