Dragaeran Gender Equality??

I can't for the life of me decide.  My concern is for the nobility - is it 
strictly a father-son inheritance (with those rare exceptions where a woman 
gets her hands on a title, but then must follow the rules and pass it on at 
her death to the eldest male heir)?  Or are Dragaerans equal in that a woman 
can hold a title in her own right, even if she has brothers/uncles/other male 
relatives who could also hold it?

And say we have a father who is a Duke.  He has four children - the eldest is 
a daughter, followed by a second daughter, then two sons.  To whom would his 
title go to when he died?  Simply the eldest heir - in this case the 
daughter?  Or would it skip the two daughters and go to the eldest SON?
