Offering `Eid prayer for women is sunnah as stated by the fatwa of the Standing Committee for Academic Research and Issuing Fatwas in this regard. They said,

“It is not obligatory for women, but it is Sunnah. Women should offer this prayer in the prayer-ground with the Muslims, because the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) enjoined them to do that.

Al-Bukhari, Muslim and others narrated that Umm ‘Atiyah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: “We were commanded (and in one report it says, he commanded us – meaning the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)) to bring out to the `Eid prayers the adolescent girls and the women in seclusion, and he commanded the menstruating women to avoid the prayer-ground of the Muslims.” …

Based on the above, it is clear that going out and attending the `Eid prayers for women is a confirmed Sunnah, but that is subject to the condition that they do not go out unveiled or making a wanton display of themselves, as is known from other evidence.”

In his response to this question, Dr. `Abdul-Fattah `Ashoor stated:

“There is no harm with that provided that a man delivers the Khutbah (sermon) for them. As for leading the Prayer, it is allowed that a woman leads them in the Prayer.”
