A good place to look for work on gender roles in AYL would be Philip C.
Kolin's *Shakespeare and Feminist Criticism:An Annotated Bibliography and
Commentary* (New York:Garland, 1991), which has fairly detailed
abstracts as well as an excellent index.

In response to Jim Schaefer's request about materials on *AYLI* . . .
 
Elaine Hobby's "My affection hath an unknown bottom": homosexuality and the
teaching of *AYLI*.  *Shakespeare and the Changing Curriculum*, edited by
Lesley Aers and Nigel Wheale, 1991.
 
This, with an interesting pedagogical angle, on constructions of what Rosalind
is, both genderedly and sexually, with particular reference to the politics of
the the English classroom in which now, through the notorious declamation of
Section 28, it is now not permitted to "promote the teaching in any maintained
school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family
relationship."
 
Of course, I'm not sure how useful or applicable this will be, given the
enlightened, liberal, and tolerant nature of the US classroom.

On James Schaeffer's "Who am I" question re *As You Like It*, I highly
recommend the discussion by Fiona Shaw in *Clamorous Voices; Shakespeare's
Women Today* ed. by Carol Rutter.  The book, dealing with several plays, is a
gem.
