If her father or husband is unable to support her and there is no other support system for her, then she may seek employment to support herself and her dependants. In doing so, she must adhere to the laws of Hijaab. She may only work to fulfil her needs and until there is an alternative support for herself and her dependants. Once there is an alternative support for her needs to be fulfilled, she cannot continue working in a way that she is compelled to violate the laws of the Shari'ah. She will be excused by Shari'ah only due to necessity.
