Upanishads certainly encourage learned females.
Now if one wishes that his daughter should be born, who is learned,
that she should attain a full term of life, they should have rice
cooked with sesamum and eat it with clarified butter, then they should
be able to beget (her).
Brhadaranyaka Upanishad VI.4.17
The above quote does not fully answer the question and is a partial answer.
I have posted below an interview given by Swami Vivekananda. He says that beyond giving education to women we should let women do whatever they want.
It was early one Sunday morning, writes our representative, in a
beautiful Himalayan valley, that I was at last able to carry out the
order of the Editor, and call on the Swami Vivekananda, to ascertain
something of his views on the position and prospects of Indian Women.
"Let us go for a walk", said the Swami, when I had announced my
errand, and we set out at once amongst some of the most lovely scenery
in the world. ….
"Are you then entirely satisfied with the position of
women amongst us, Swamiji?"
"By no means," said the Swami, "but our right of interference is
limited entirely to giving education. Women must be put in a position
to solve their own problems in their own way. No one can or ought to
do this for them. And our Indian women are as capable of doing it as
any in the world."
