Answer

(Fatwa: 563/563/M=1431)

 

Your husband is not right in giving you all the responsibilities of outside work. Woman should stay at home. Yes, only at the time of need and helplessness she can go out observing veil. In the question if you are subject to go outside your home to fulfil housework and by driving you can perform that work quickly then you can go by driving with veil.
