The answer is Yes (as it says in SHU"T Minchas Shlomo 1:76).

(Shu"t Ginat Veradim 14:5:8) says that a women should tear the inner garment as if not, it would involve a breach of dignity.

Could you tell me who the SHU"T Minchas Shlomo and the SHU"T Ginat Veradim are by writing a bit about them as answers to this question? –  Chanoch Jun 15 '11 at 1:09
    
can someone explain this answer? –  Shmuel Brin May 9 '12 at 16:36
    
I think that this is what the answer meant, but I do not have a minchas shlomo or ginas veradim (what he wrote in the name of the ginas veradim doesn't make senee). –  Shmuel Brin May 9 '12 at 16:39
    
Minchat Shelomo 1:76 is not about keriya. Am I looking at the wrong teshuva? You are referring to Rav Shlomo Zalman Aurbach? The one I see is all about afka'inhu lekiddushin. –  Double AA May 9 '12 at 17:25
    
@DoubleAA we need to find simchashatorah, as they are the same user (this one will never log back in, as he lost control of his login). –  Shmuel Brin May 9 '12 at 18:06
