Can women travel alone?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by ShariahBoard.org

My question is: Is it permissible for wife to travel alone from India to USA without being accompanied by Mahhram. Please do state the opinion of Hanafi maslak. Some people say it will depend on the need/condition, if so explain how shariah defines the need/condition.

It is not allowed for a lady to travel without her close relative (Mahram). Even if there is a dire necessity, we would still have to say that doing so would be wrong. If someone does they should do taubah (repent) and ask Allah from for forgiveness.
