Women and Birchat haGomel


A woman is obligated to express gratitude to Gd by reciting Birchat haGomel, as men are. However, they are not obligated in the trappings which the sages set up for men - reciting it with a minyan, and linking it to kriat hatorah. Even reciting it in front of her husband is sufficient.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:14 - but see Mishneh Berurah 219:3)

Have a great day,
