Are there different gender roles in Buddhism?
Buddhism is more of a philosophy then a religion so women can take part on an equal footing. however there are a lot of different schools of thought in Buddhism.
Gender Roles refers to what's commonly expected of Males & Females in the society in which they live in (Gender Roles strongly reflect culture & are different in different countries) For example: female gender roles in the U.S. could be to cook, clean, take care of the children, to be caring, nurturing, & social.

Not in theory. However, in practice, Buddhism originated in patriarchal societies in southern Asia so that, historically, the role of women in the history of Buddhism has been less than fully recognized.

OK...so...gender 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.
Basically, this question can not be answered. Gender Roles Are unavoidable. They are a result of our biological make up and are created unintentionally by society. I supose that gender roles have a negative effect on society as the impose many stereotypical norms on people and force people to fit a predisposed mold.

Gender can affect people's health through fitting gender roles. These roles are not as healthy as other roles, however some people go into them due to peer pressure and influence. For example: a guy who parties and drinks a lot or a girl who sleeps around a lot is not good for either person's health.
