In an earlier question I mentioned that women make Birchas Hatorah. Is the same true for Sefardic women and why?
Halacha Berurah 47:27
Women also say birkat hatorah every day because they're chayav to learn the laws that apply to them, for example hilchot Shabbat, tefillah, berachot, hilchot niddah and challah, and other halachot of issur and heter. In any event, they're not required to say birkat hatorah -- it's simply that if they want to, then they're permitted to.
Women are obligated to say Birchas Hatorah.
Even though the position of the Shulchan Aruch is that women may not make berachos when performing mitzvahs they are not obligated in [like time bound mitzvahs], the Shulchan Aruch stills requires women to make the bracha.
Many (Beis Halevi, among others) explain why [Sephardic] women can make Birchas Hatorah because they are obligated to learn the laws relating to mitzvahs they are obligated in.
The Brisker Rav (Hil. Berachos) quotes his father, R' Chaim Solovetchik, that Birchas Hatorah is not a Birchas HaMitzvos, but actually a Beracha on the 'cheftza of Torah' (more similar in classification to Birchas Hashvach).
