In a congregation consisting of three people, two males and a female: The male imam will stand in front, the other male will stand to the right of the imam, and the female will stand behind the imam.


عن أنس بن مالك: أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم صلى به وبأمه، أو خالته، قال: فأقامني عن يمينه، وأقام المرأة خلفنا
