What it takes to be a good woman

I often ask myself what it takes to be a good woman. I see my mom, I see my aunts, I see my sister, I see my friends... I see myself. We all are women but our thoughts are so different!
My mom used to say, "You have to study hard to be a good graduate."
My aunts used to say, "You have to learn household chores to be a good homemaker."
My sister used to say, "You have to makeover yourself in a way so that you be a good prospective bride."
My friends used to say, "Whatever you do, you have to have a very good career; you have to be a good careerist."
Today I'm among the best graduates in country; I'm managing my home on my own; I'm married to the best husband one can ever be; and I'm having continual flights in career.
I wonder whether these criteria are enough to be a good woman or are there some more too? .....
