Woman working during iddat

Q: Can a woman work during her iddat following a divorce?

A: During iddat, it is not permissible for a woman to leave the home. If a woman is divorced, it is the husband's duty to provide maintenance for his divorced wife during her iddat period.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
