SN.37.24. Pañcasīlasutta ("Five Precepts")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“Anuruddha, when females have five qualities, when their body breaks up, after death, they are reborn in a good place, a heavenly realm. What five? They don’t kill living creatures, steal, commit sexual misconduct, lie, or consume alcoholic drinks that cause negligence. When females have these five qualities, when their body breaks up, after death, they are reborn in a good place, a heavenly realm.”
