Q: When my boyfriend took off his baseball cap during the playing of the national anthem at a baseball game, he told me I should take off my cap too. I know from reading Emily Post that men and boys are supposed to remove their hats in certain situations, but I always thought that women could keep theirs on anywhere. Am I wrong?
A: Although a woman may leave her hat on indoors or during the playing of the national anthem, a baseball cap is a different story because it is considered unisex. So, when wearing a cap, a woman should follow the same guidelines as a man does – which means removing a cap in most indoor situations and during the playing of the national anthem.
