The truth is, I think women today are on different terrain than what's been available in previous generations. We're not willing to stay in a limited, traditional role; but we're not really interested in stepping into a traditional man's role where the prize is that we can apply the "liberated" label to ourselves. I guess a "real woman" is someone who's willing to see sculpting her presence in the world as worthwhile endeavor.
Women behaviour today depends mostly of their environment, unless they're highly conscious so they can question that and act according their believes or whatever, now that's great. As happen with men, not everyone is like this... Watching only in Spain, my country, there's a huge difference between women behaviour depending of the place of the country they're living.
And imagine if we consider different continents.... the "typical woman" or Morocco, is not the same as the Japanese one, the Brazilian one, the USA one, or the Spanish one.
Well, when you take full responsability for yourself instead or leaving that to what's usual in your environment, now that's great.
