Asalamualaikum wrt,

All praise be to Allah.

Honorable sister,

Both men and women are allowed inside the Ka'aba, from the point of view of Islamic Shariah.  In  fact, anyone who visits the Sacred House can pray inside the Kaaba.  The reason they can do that is because there is a round wall near the Ka'aba structure called the Hatteem, that demarcates the boundaries of the orginal house built by Ibraheem and Ismail, where one can go and pray, and one would actually be praying 'inside' the original Ka'aba of Ibraheem:)

However, it should be noted that there is no special reward for doing so, and it is not from the acts of Hajj, and the Sahabah differed as to whether the Prophet (peace be upon him) actually offered prayers inside of the Ka'aba.

I heard a group of Western students (I assume brothers and sisters) were granted a look inside by the authorities there a couple summers ago, but I have no way of verifying that.

All success lies in following the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

And Allah knows best.

Be merciful to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will be merciful to you.
