Even here in Canada, bars would have two separate sections with different doors. One was labelled "Ladies", the other "Escorts". Women had to enter by that door and could not go into the "men only" section. Some old bars had their entrance labels as fancy signs, or even cut into stonework. (Some very old elementary schools still have separate "BOYS" and "GIRLS" door labels, with the lables cut into stonework as well - this is buildings built between, say, 1920, and WW2.)
