Women are required to say Birkath HaMazon. So why can't they join a zimun with men? Some rishonim say they can, though it may not have been common practice. Nowadays Rav Moshe Feinstein permits mixed seating, based on the fact that men and women ate the korban Pesah together. When women eat by themselves, they are required to make a zimun.
