A double standard trope exemplifies this; these are tropes whose persistence reveals our collective assumptions about gender roles, drawing in one fashion or another on enduring, often unspoken assumptions that men should be like that a woman should be doing these things.
Women are not the only ones confined into gender roles by the assumptions underlying these tropes.
Double standards for the genders are very old; separate gender roles have existed for thousands of years.
