Does the prohibition on leaving the mosque after the adhaan apply to women too?

Does the hadeeth which forbids leaving the mosque after the adhaan include women, if they are in the mosque?

Praise be to Allaah. 

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who replied as follows:

 It does not include them, because women are not obliged to pray in jamaa’ah (in the first place). And Allaah knows best.

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen
