There is a special Bracha in many Siddurim just for women -'She'ashani kirtzono', so probably yes. –  sharshi Apr 23 '14 at 14:09
@sharshi Just because they can say something doesn't mean they must. –  Double AA Apr 23 '14 at 21:03
@doubleAA is a Halacha, s"a 46:4 beta.hebrewbooks.org/tursa.aspx?a=oc_x412 not a must? –  sharshi Apr 23 '14 at 21:15
@sharshi Now you are playing semantic games and I won't play along. –  Double AA Apr 23 '14 at 21:17
