Question:

Can a woman look at a man

Answer:

Bismillah

There are two situations regarding your question. If a woman looks at a man with desire and lust then that will be haram.

However, if a woman looks at a man without any desire then according to Imam Abu Hanifa raḥimahullāh (may Allāh have mercy upon him) there is nothing wrong with this and this is permissible because it was proven that Saaidah Aaisha raḍyAllāhu 'anha (may Allāh be pleased with her) watched the Ethiopians when they were playing in the mosque. (Durre Mandhuud p.161 v.6)
