Unfortunately this 'how to' also involves female stereotypes but, eh, what can you do?
This character 要 - has several different meanings but this is how I remember the more dominant use as a fourth tone, yào. Generally it means (to) want something or for something to be vital / important.
The character has two parts. The bottom is 女 nǚ, which represents a woman.
The top part of the character looks like a purse.
Of course, a purse is important to a woman and is something they want.
