*Fifty years ago there were clear eti­quette rules. For exam­ple, don’t remove your sports coat or smoke your pipe around women, and never dis­cuss per­sonal affairs in pub­lic. But things have changed.

You can no longer be sure whether you’ll be scoffed at or thanked for open­ing a door for a woman.
