Women in Ancient Rome in the time of the Emperor Hadrian did not take part in the daily work life of the empire in the same way as men.
Although women were respected, their place in Roman Society was the home.
They were expected to cook, clean, sew and in general maintain and run the household.
Of course, wealthy Roman families would have had slaves to take over and do many of the more boring household chores for the lady of the house.
Whilst a Roman Mistress of a house in the city, a Domus, might choose to go out into the streets and shop herself, shopping for the household was generally done by slaves.
