Because tefilla is a time bound mitzvah, if a woman has accidentally not davened by the time 6 hours into the day has passed (chatzot), should she still daven shacharit?

Common sense says no... being exempt of time-bound mitzva does not mean that they can ignore time altogether, otherwise we would see women take lulav at chanuka...

  • +1 excellent argument. There are many other problems with the assumptions of the question (is prayer really a time-bound command (maybe), are women exempt from it even if it is (no), etc.) but this is good enough for here. – Double AA Jun 22 at 12:44

She should not daven after chaztot. See halichot shlomo 8:42

בספר הליכות שלמה פרק שמיני סע' מב מובא בשם הגרש"ז אויערבך: "נהגו העולם שנשים מתפללות עד חצות, ויש להם על מי שיסמוכו, ומכל מקום עדיף שלא תעשה כן". ובהערה הוסיף: ואף אשה שמתפללת רק תפילה אחת ביום, טוב יותר שלא תתפלל בכה"ג שחרית אלא מנחה.
