Full Answer

The etiquette rule is more straightforward for females. All girls under 18 are addressed as "Miss." After that, it has become customary to identify a woman as "Ms." unless she has a personal preference or has adopted "Mrs." For both males and females, these forms of address are often saved for formal correspondence and are not used on a daily basis.
