How do women offer a congregational prayer, do the stand in one row and one of them becomes an Imam in the same row, give us a fatwa, may Allah reward you.

كيف تصلي النساء جماعة هل يصطففن في صف واحد وتقوم امرأة بدور الإمام في نفس الصف أفتونا

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.
As to what follows:
With regards to answering your question we say, success is by Allah Almighty.
The majority of scholars from the Hanafites, Shafites, Hanbalites and others are of the opinion that the person who leads women in prayer stands in the middle of them. This is according to what Baihaqi and others narrated from Aisha and Umm Salama (may Allah be pleased with them) who said an Imam of the women stands in the middle of them. A group of scholars including Ahmad and Ibn Hazim said: She stands in front of them like how an Imam leading men stands. What is apparent to me is that it is permissible for her to stand in front but the best is for her to stand in the middle as reported by Aisha and Umm Salama (may Allah be pleased with them).

Your brother,
