    With women you did well! It is usually expected of women to do what you said, but here are a few more things I thought of... Women/Girls (Gender Roles/Stereotypes); - get married - not expected to go to college/get high(er) education (sadly, a lot of people think this way!) - have children - do all the housework (as you said) - be all "pretty-pretty" and impress boys - eat daintily - "act like a lady" What I think would be best with men... Men/Boys (Gender Roles/Stereotypes); - hard working (in contrast to what you previously said, "Easy light weight work") - fixes household stuff (like you said) - act tough - not cry (boys, mostly, not really men) - (boy children exclusively) play with toy cars, trains, "manly" things - eat a lot (or enough) - king/master of the house Hope this is helpful!!
