Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Putrī (पुत्री) refers to “daughter” and is used to describe Pārvatī (the incarnation of Goddess Śivā), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.11.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated: “O Nārada, the daughter of the mountain [i.e., giri-putrī—gireḥ putrī], honoured in the three worlds, was brought up in the palace of Himācala. When she was eight years old, Śiva distressed by Śatī’s separation came to know of her birth. Keeping her wonderful memory within his heart He rejoiced much. In the meantime, following the conventions of the world, Śiva wished to perform penance in order to concentrate his mind properly. [...]”.

General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Putrī (पुत्री) refers to the “daughter”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Here [in the cycle of rebirth] a king becomes an insect and an insect becomes the chief of the gods. An embodied soul might wander about, tricked by [their] karma without being able to help it. For corporeal [souls] the mother becomes the daughter (putrī), the sister, even the wife. The father, moreover, becomes the son and he obtains the paternal home”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
