Line for the server...

This code would give you an indicator variable showing what the highest
value of "sex" is for each family. Provided that in the dummy "sex" the
females are coded as "1" (which in my experience is unusual), you can take
this as a dummy for the presence of at least one female in the family. It
does not give you the number you asked for in the initial post, though...
