Subject:  Women and Tefila
Message:  Are women chayav to follow the zmanei hatefila when they say the amidah? If so, why isn't it a "mitzvah asei shehazman gerama, and thus they would be patur?"
Reply:  Yes
The Talmud explains why in Brachot.
It says that Tefilah (prayer) is for mercy, and women need mercy too.
