This can be particularly problematic for those with specific religious beliefs and/or practices or those who have experienced certain dramas, abuse, or have been victims of sex trafficking. For those individuals, being in an enclosed environment with a person of authority (usually a male), can trigger high anxiety and/or discomfort. The simple act of keeping the door open shows them there is nothing to fear and that they can be at ease.
