Will women see Allah Ta'ala?

Q: I read that there is a difference of opinion whether women see Allah Ta'ala. Some say that they don't see Him at all and some say that they see him but see Him less than men. Is there any evidence that women may not see Allah Ta'ala at all or see Him less than men?

Why are all scholars in agreement that men see Allah Ta'ala but they disagree if women will see Him. Does that mean that a man who committed many sins but after being in hell was admitted to paradise is better than a woman who did not make major sins, as he gets to see Allah Ta'ala more than her and she may not see Allah Ta'ala at all or see Him less? 

A: The rewards of the hereafter are equal for men and women. Allah Ta`ala in His mercy has given equal opportunities for rewards and progress of the hereafter. Many times, women overtake men as well.

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