I think I've got a design direction on my game, but I need to brainstorm some material. Help me fill out these two lists, if you please!

First, a list of Things a Man Does in Shakespeare's plays. these are things that men do and women DON'T, generally speaking. It's OK if there are exceptions and outliers, but these are things that, if a woman did them, it would be like, WHOA.

I've got:

Serve in the Army
Fight Duels
Pursue a suit
Decide the suit of marriagable daughters
Make decisions for the family
Travel freely
Seize political power
Watch their spouse for infidelity
Instruct their spouse

What else?

And similarly, I need a list of Things Women Do. These are things that would be unmanful and scandalous if a man did them, or that they simply wouldn't think to do.

I've got:

Guard their chastity
Offer comfort and sympathy
Raise children
Tend to the injured
Perform domestic duties
Protest an offered suit
Give advice to a spouse

What else?


PS It's ok if some of these are contentious; in fact they should be! So don't sweat if everyone everywhere would agree with your item; lay em on me!

Story by the Throat! Relentlessly pursuing story in roleplaying, art and life.

I think that only women crossdress to do the men's stuff.  And not the other way around.

Also, practice law would be a man's work.
