Benevolent Sexism

a form of sexism that may be communicated via comments or behaviors presented as compliments or positioned as positive and protective (i.e. men holding doors open for women or believing men should put women on pedestals), but that are rooted in and reinforce gender stereotypes of women’s inabilities or assumed weaknesses compared to men.
