What is the best power drill (for women) for simple things and task around the house?
Without being sexist we have to recognise that the average woman has smaller hands, less muscle bulk and strength than the average man, but we don't want to play an absurd game of breaking people down into averages, you are doing women a disservice by the wording of your question. The same rules apply to women as men when choosing a power drill, go to a DIY shop and pick them up until you find the one that feels right for you, that system works every time.
i bought my wife a makita 9.6 volt cordless drill. it's small but fairly powerful. she loves it.
You can get a full power drill, with smaller, lighter metrics in just about any brand; however, I would suggest a Makita. I've been through just about every kind of power drill, and the Makitas have done me the best.

Something like this is very good, and VERY reliable. It IS more expensive than most, but for the durability, and the weight, it is one of the best. Makitas come with very good features, such as led lights, that turn on when you pull the trigger just a little bit, that shine on the tip of the drill, making it easier to see what you are doing, without wasting battery.
For doing light drilling and driving screws you could get a 12 volt cordless drill. This wouldn't be too big or heavy but try and get one with the highest torque which is usually quoted in NM(Newton Metres) or foot pounds.
If you want to fix coat hooks or shelves, a light hammer drill with about 600 watts of power is good enough for drilling holes in masonry. Pay a little extra to get a well known make such as the Bosch DIY series or Ryobi or any other well known make. You don't need a pro-drill as these are designed for long life and to stand up to rough use.
I have a hub here on fixing coat hooks and shelves:
