A Muslim women can work provided that the mahrem who is responsible for her agrees, and that the conditions are suitable. For example, she has to wear proper hijab, she shouldn't have to work closely with men, she has to have safe transportation, the kind of work and the type of business have to be halal, etc.
In addition, if she has household responsibilities, such as cleaning, cooking, and child care, of course she and her husband or head of the household have to have an arrangement for meeting those household needs.
It is best that she works in an environment where there are predominantly women working there. If she has the right intention and makes effort then Allah will open doors for her and provide for her a suitable job in the right environment.
I would say that you should get into teaching in a girls madrassa. You can teach any subject and this would be a means of great reward. You can also do charity work and social work with women with domestic or mental issues. A job which benefits people is the best job of all but in an environment where thre are predominantley women working there.
May Allah make it easy for you inshallah
and Allah knows best in all matters.
