In western nations historically women did the cooking, cleaning, washing and mending of clothes, and house chores.

Today the roles women play have very few limitations. They have been heads of state, such as Margaret Thatcher, fire fighters, police officers, and pilots. The US Military discourages women from serving in active combat roles.
