The ruling on a Women Studying Engineering or Chemistry
Question:

Can a girl pursue studies in the sciences, in fields such as Chemistry, Physics, etc?
Answer:

A women should not specialize in a field that is outside of her realm. She has the opportunity to pursue many fields that are suitable to her, like Islamic Studies or the Arabic Language. Fields such as Chemistry, Engineering, Architecture, Astronomy and Geography do not suit her. A women should choose what benefits her and that which benefits society. Furthermore, men need to establish institutions for women that will prepare them for those fields that they need to study, Gynecology and pre-natal care being important examples.
