I have seen wall hangings and online posters with this saying on it - Well-behaved women rarely make history. It means that historical women figures in the United States were women who did things that typically women "shouldn't" do. Women who fought for the right to vote, before women were allowed that right, would be an example.
People say this when women are acting in a wild behavior.
I like this proverb, because I think all people should be allowed to have fun and do things they like, even if it is a gender-specific task.
