A woman may blow for herself and other women, since all have the same level of obligation to hear shofar, as a matter of binding custom. However, some halachic authorities maintain that it would be preferable for women to hear a man blow, because he has a Torah-level obligation.

For the same reason, because men have a Torah-level obligation, a woman may not blow shofar for men. To learn more about this, read our source-based discussion here.
