It seems that women weren’t allowed to take MGA’s bait? Either that or they were illiterate and unable to sign their names on a paper. Its most likely both, in 1889, no women took MGA’s bait. In 1896, MGA published a list of 313 sahabis, some men are listed as with wife, for example, Noorudin is listed (with wife), and thus moves the number to 314, and that upsets what MGA and his team were working on, i.e. a parallel to the amount of Muslims that Muhammad (saw) had early on, if they would have added the women, the number would have swelled to 400+. Further Nusrat Jehan says that since she was with MGA, i.e. married to him, she was always in his bait.
In the below, we present a reference from Seeratul Mahdi, wherein Nusrat Jehan Begum admits that she never came under MGA’s bait, nor did any other women it seems. We are not sure when the Ahmadiyya Khalifa’s began accepting bait from women.

Narration no. 20
“My mother narrated to me that mgaq took his first bai’t (oath of allegience) at Ludhiana. First day 40 men took bai’t and when He came back some women took bai’t. First of all Molvi Noordin took bait. Humble one asked WHEN DID YOU TAKE BAI’T? MOTHER SAID, IT IS KNOWN THAT I DELAYED MY BAI’T AND TOOK IT AFTER MANY YEARS. THIS IS WRONG….RATHER I NEVER SEPARATED FROM HIM (mgaq) AND ALWAYS STAYED WITH HIM AND RIGHT FROM THE START, I CONSIDERED MYSELF IN THE BAI’T AND NEVER FELT THE NEED FOR SEPARATE BAIT”
