The Muslim Woman

Umm Salamah As-Salafiyyah (may Allaah preserve her) stated:
And even though Islaam has indeed given the woman many rights, this doesn't mean that Islaam has given her unrestricted freedom in the matter of entering, leaving out, making a dazzling display of oneself when out in public, and mixing with men. Rather, Islaam has prohibited the matter of leaving out of the home in abundance without there being a need. 
Allaah said:

"And remain in your homes, and do not make a dazzling display of yourself like that of the first pre-Islaamic time of ignorance..."
(Soorah Al-Ahzaab: 33)
