I want to know that many women read eid prayers together in a hall. Is it right or wrong? There is no eid prayers for women & only men, but they say as men are forgiven all sins after eid prayers, then how do women benifit from this reward?

Dear Sister in Islam,
The answer to your question is as follows:

Eid and Jumo¡¯h prayers are not Wajib for women. Besides, the Jama¡¯t of women is also forbidden. (Shami V: P: 410)But they can offer Nafl Salah alone at their homes when the Salah of Eid is over in the Masjid or at Eidgah.

And Allah knows the best,
