I remember a long time ago hearing that the Rav (Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik (1903–1993)) held that women should pray three times a day.

Can anyone verify this, and what is the reason/source for this?

As quoted in MiPeninei HaRav (page 73), the Rav felt 'based on the simple reading of the Mishna in Berachot (20b)' that women are obligated to pray Maariv.
