What about this?
Machlokos...
 ר' יהושע בן לוי אומר אפילו מחיצה של ברזל
One has to answer to the brochos and participate, gemarah in pesachim daf pey daled or pey hay, IIRC.

 And then the other opinion is what we hold, the halacha is one is not mechyuv to answer when he's in a different room, that's the pesak in Shulchun Aruch. CMIIW.

Are you allowed to answer amen if you overhear Kaddish while in mikva room & nobody’s undressed ?
That whole shailah is depended on what you consider the mikva room?
 Is it like a beis hamerchatz or not.
 If it is like a B"H then you wouldn't be able to make a bracha, or answer a bracha as well you would need to wash your hands outside.
 Or if you hold like those who say a mikvah is not like a B"H then you can wash your hands inside the room and answer a bracha inside the room if you hear a bracha.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I stand corrected, I think we paskin if ones in middle of learning then one doesn't have to answer, while if your not then one should answer.

It may depend on what kind of Amen you are saying, if you are trying to be yotzei someone elses bracha I think you would not be allowed too, if you are just saying Amen from hearing someone elses bracha then I think it would depend on what kind of Mikvah you`re at, if the showers and changing area and mikvah are all in the same "room/section" then most shitos would say you can`t  since it`s a bais hamerchatz if it Mikvah is set up in separate compartments, water, changing area, showers, and you are standing in an emty changing area most shitos would say you may answer Amen.

what's the inyan of not even tasting anything until after megilla reading tonight?

I know for those that are weak they are permitted to taste something before the reading but many people don't even taste anything.  It is a real chumra/halacha for most of us that are healthy? why only weak people have a heter?

Its it like all other mitzvot(like bedikat chametz and chanuka candles) where we don't eat anything until after the mitzva lest we carry on with our eating?  If so tasting was always permitted by bedkiat chametz and  chanuka candles.  So why here are a lot of people machmir to not taste anything?

Instead of asking "tasting" you can ask on just drinking a coffee, which is allowed before other mitzvos. I always had this question, somebody told me it's because it's after a taanis it's more chumer you shouldn't get stuck eating after a fast day.

Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

But most people are machmir not to eat or drink anything before the megillah even when it's ודאי לילה, what's the reason for that? why not do a coffee break after Mariv before reading the megillah.

I guess what people here are saying is that even drinking or tasting may lead you to neglect the megilla reading mitzva because of the fast?  you are prone to prolong your eating more so after a fast etc... and thereby delay or neglect mitzavs hayom

i don't think there is much difference between drinking or eating a snack in the poskim in this context

Maybe, but talking in practical terms, a hot coffee before the megillah, the best! :)

Is it ok for a lady/girl to eat if they’re going to hear Megillah with a later minyan ?
