A Women prays without an Iqamah
Question:

Is it permissible for a woman to call the Iqamah for prayer or to pray without an Iqamah?
Answer:

The Athan and the Iqamah are prescribed for men and not for women, according to the narration of Al-Bayhaqi, on the authority of Ibn Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, who said: It is not an obligation upon women to make the Athan and Iqamah.[1] Based upon this, what is legislated for the women is to leave the Athan and Iqamah.
