My rav says a woman has the obligation to recite a hundred benedictions a day. Is this the view of the majority of poskim? What are the reasons? The following are footnotes from halachapedia:
- (Women are not obliged:) From Halichot Bayta 13:note 2 in name of Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, Sh”t Teshuvot VeHanhagot 2:129, Sh”t Shevet HaKehati 3:63, Birkat Eitan (pg 62), Vezot HaBracha (pg 185, chapter 20), Sh”t Ateret Paz 1:1, Shevet HaLevi 5:23, and Sh”t Rivevot Efraim 3:47, 5:114 write that women are exempt and some base it on the Magen Avraham regarding Zecher Yetziat Mitzrayim in Shema who disagrees with the Shagat Aryeh.
- (Women are obliged) Rav Elyashiv in Yashiv Moshe (pg 19) and Birkat Eitan (pg 61), Rav Hershel Schachter in a shiur on yutorah.org ("Women at Prayer" min 28), Chacham Ovadyah in Halichot Olam (vol 1 pg 59), Halacha Brurah 46:8, and Yalkut Yosef (Otzar Dinim LeIsha 6:1 pg 75), and Halichot Bat Yisrael (end of chapter 14) write that women are obligated since it’s a obligation that applies the whole day and is renewed every day similar to the Shagat Aryeh regarding Zecher Yetziat Mitzrayim in Shema. Yalkut Yosef (Otzar Dinim LeIsha 6:1 pg 75) cites some who say that after the fact women can fulfill their obligation with praises of Hashem or by answering Amen to the brachot of others. See Contemporary Questions In Halacha and Hashkafa pg. 106 where he quotes opinions on both sides as well
