How to do it with Norwegian Women

Source: "The Social Guidebook to Norway"

Since I was 12 year old

I was told to open doors for women

to walk on the right side of the sidewalk

to serve wine to women first


When I got to Norway

women told me

they could open doors themselves

that I should not change side to walk between them and the cars

and they were suspicious that I was trying to get them drunk when serving them wine

Norwegian women are independent

Very independent

Gender-based politeness norms are mostly absent

And it is considered as a good thing

Politeness means something different in Norway
