Two detrimental characteristics of women

Kindly provide the reference for the Hadith below

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“O womenfolk, you should give charity and ask seek abundant forgiveness [as this will protect you from Jahannam] for I saw you in bulk among the dwellers of Jahannam. A woman among them said: ‘Why is it, Messenger of Allah, that our folk is in bulk in Jahannam’? Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied, ‘You curse too much and are ungrateful to your spouses.”
