When a man and woman enters into a revolving door together (again at the airport), should the male let the female go first through those revolving doors? The problem with that is that the female ends up pushing those revolving doors (at least gets the revolving doors started). But then again, if the male goes first and starts the pushing, he has gone ahead of the female which seems counterintuitive to the “ladies first” protocol.

In business it is no longer male to female, but professional to professional. This does not mean that you cannot open the door for ladies. I think that opening a door is great for anyone. In the North American culture that is very common. If you do go first to help get the door moving, say, let me get the door “going” for you; I am sure she (or he) will appreciate that.
