Is it sunnah for women to perform ghusal on Friday

Q: Is it sunnah to perform ghusl on Friday for women as well (women not going to go to the Friday prayer)?

If it is not, then does it make a difference whether a women does ghusl on Friday or not? Some people are afraid that if women stop doing ghusl on that day, then the tradition of doing so will eventually come to a halt.

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
