Well Gender Roles have changed by in the 1900's the woman started to vote and now in the 21st century they can vote and they have every right. roles= socially determined and accepted ways of acting (loosely..). Masculine= one who identifies as masculine. Feminine= one who identifies as feminine. Masculine gender roles, then, would be activities and expressions accepted by a majority of society to be "manly". Feminine gender roles, then, would be activities and expressions accepted by a majority of society to be "womanly". There are issues with this because not everyone falls into this gender binary. It's a harmful system.
