Talking to women


How should one deal with the fact that the shulhan aruch says you can’t say hello to a woman and the fact that if you do so in today’s society it will be very insulting? Is there any leeway with this halacha?


Since now days saying hello is only a formality, the  observance of rules of convention or etiquette, many poskim permit it.
