Chapter 141:6-7
Laws of the Megillah

6. On Purim, the prayer "Al Ha'Nissim", is recited in the Sh'mone Esrei of "Ma'ariv," "Shacharis" and "Mincha." If one forgot to recite it, the same laws as Chanukah apply (See HY 139:21).

7. Every person, man and woman, is obligated to hear the reading of the Megillah at night and during the day [of Purim]. Therefore, even the young single girls should go to synagogue [to hear the reading]. If they do not go, someone must read for them at home. Even young children must be educated to go to hear the Megillah, however, very young children should not be brought to synagogue because they disturb the concentration of those listening.
