No, but there were women with the Roman Army. Officers, centurions, and some soldiers were allowed to marry, and there were also women who stayed in the army camps and followed them on the march.... for various reasons.

Women in ancient times were respected for their femininity and a virtuous woman was honored in Roman society. Men's and women's roles we completely different from the present day attitudes. The Romans, or any ancient society would be horrified at even the idea of women soldiers. Yes, yes, I know there were supposed to be women fighters called Amazons and even female gladiators, but they were an exception or a novelty, not the norm. Besides, what country would put its national pride on the line by being known as an army of women?

Did a female ever fight in the Roman army?

As far as I know there was never a famous female gladiator. However, during gladiator games there were often "special matchups" that might feature women. For example, a woman might be dressed as a gladiator and set to fight a dozen midgets. Other special events might include wild animals, foreign people, etc.

Why did the Roman army originally fight only between spring and autumn?

The Roman soldiers were originally farmers. They had to be home to plant early in spring and to harvest late in fall, in the winter the weather was not suitable to fight. This left only late spring, summer, and early autumn available for fighting. Because the winter was unsuitable for warfare, the Romans continued to fight in the spring and summer even: a) when these peasant soldiers did not go back to their farms in the winter because they fought outside Italy and wintered where the war was taking place (Greece, Spain, Africa, Turkey, Gaul and the like) b) after the Roman army ceased to be an army of part-time peasant soldiers and became an army of full-time professional soldiers drawn from the landless poor. This was not a Roman peculiarity either. The armies of all states fought in the spring and summer and spent the winter in winter quarters.
