When good manners and equality clash

When good manners and equality clash

I've never thought very much about all of the different angles around the concept of men opening doors for women. I mentally shrugged my shoulders, thanked people when they held the door for me, held the door for others and went on with my life. Sweden is very much into gender-equality, so it hasn't come up. After a few days of having multiple men hold the door for me as a polite gesture, I'm surprised at just how surprised and startled I am by it.
