It is necessary for Muslim community to have female medical and pharmaceutical experts who can serve our females' medical and pharmaceutical needs. In case of the need can not be fulfilled by male experts, it can be compulsory on females who can, to study and meet the need.

In general, we encourage our Muslim females to go in every career which is required by our community as far as the female is observing proper Hijab and keeping herself away from mixing with sinful people and sinful acts.

Wassalam.

Bismihi ta'ala

A healthy spousal relationship is based primarily on communication. The husband and wife must discuss whatever is needed between them, and inform each other what they want, what they like/dislike, what their expectations are, and so on. 

Anything that contributes to keeping the marriage stable must be discussed. 

If husband and wife have a mutual understanding on leaving the house, where to go, where not to go, when to return, who to see, who not to see, etc., then many problems will be avoided.

The husband can give a general consent to the wife, and that is usually what happens, unless he turns to become an oppressive controlling man, which not only will he become miserable, so will the marriage. 

So, a husband can say to his wife, if you need to visit your family, or go to the mosque, or visit a dr, or go shopping, you don't need to wait for my approval. Just leave me a note, or ring/message me.

Such a scenario is absolutely fine. This would be ideal, and with good communication both sides will be happy. The ruling of a wife leaving the house only with consent of husband is not something that should be misused or manipulated. 

Also, if a husband knows by leaving the house for a certain purpose or a certain time, or staying out too much will upset his wife, then morally he should not do so, and it will certainly jeopardise his relationship. 

As the verse 3 of Surah al-Nisa` says: عاشِرُوهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوف

A wife is not like a school student, and must not be treated as someone immature. The more independent family members are, the wiser they become and more responsible as well. 

More can be said about this, but I will suffice with this brief answer. 

And Allah knows best. 

As the verse says:

As long as she is under the age of "ya`s" or shar'i menopause, then she must observe 'iddah, which for her is not three menstrual cycles, but rather three full months. 

In fiqh, a woman who is in the age of menstruating, but does not menstruate, she is referred to as mustarabah.  Of course, it would be a good idea for her to refer  to the specific view of her Marja' taqleed. 

And Allah knows best.

If you definitely know that this female will use your beauty services in sinful way, then you should not help her in doing wrong. If you do not know that and they do wrong later on, you will not be responsible of their sinful acts.

If the woman is virgin (never married before) she will need permission of her father or paternal grand father for her marriage. If her father is refusing suitable proposals with out valid reason, she will have the right to get married with a suitable believer to protect herself from falling in Haraam.

If she was married before, she will not then need permission from her father for marriage.

Hijab is compulsory on every Muslim female, with no difference between married or unmarried. Hijab means covering the whole hair and body of the female except her face and paws. The dress should not be tied showing the size of the body nor transparent.

In the case of other Muharrams, such as uncles , there is not much difference with others like father or brother, except for differences based on the culture of that community. But logically there is difference between husband and others.

Islam preaches inner and outer modesty, and as human beings, we feel more safe and secure when we are covered up. This is why all religions somehow promote covering up and not being exposed for onlookers to see. 

If a non-Muslim wishes to dress modestly, then of course that will benefit her. If she wishes to dress like a nun, or as Muslims, then that is also her choice, and it would not be considered as being 'inappropriate'. 

In the case of a Muslim woman, or non-Muslim, wanting to, for example, enter into a holy shrine, there is a requirement that she does wear an abayah/chador. It is not Islamically mandated, but just out of respect. 

And Allah knows best.

It is wrong for her to hurt or annoy or degrade her current husband in any way.

If he is not fulfilling his duties, she can gently and politely remind him with out comparing him with other or hurting his feelings.

Her husband gets one quarter. The remaining three quarters goes to the son and daughter who were alive when the woman died. Two shares for the son and one share for the daughter. 
If the daughter had already passed away before her mother, the son will get the three quarters.
