Do you practice the 'ladies first' etiquette?The rules of conduct in society are known as etiquette.
It is deemed a correct behaviour to give ladies precedence e.g. while passing through a door or other narrow passage or serving food or drinks at a table.
'Women and children first' is another concept applied in the situations of emergency or a life threatening situation e.g. in wartime or when on a sinking ship etc.
However, according to another school of thought, the infirm individuals like injured, elderly and young children should get precedence.
