Does the Qur'an actually prohibit women from being educated; or does it only allow them religious education?

I was thinking about that little Arab girl who was shot in the face. She wanted to be educated – her school had been destroyed by the Taliban. I was wondering what girls/women are allowed to study; what subjects are acceptable.
