Professions of Woman in the begining of Islam

In modern times, do you still think that woman’s duties are only taking care of the household? Like washing, cooking, to taking care of children. Try it, for those of you who still think like that eliminated.

In Islam, there is no sharia law that allows locking woman inside the house aka every woman is allowed to work outside the home.
