As far as I've seen, this isn't the case in The Netherlands in general.
Women have fought long and hard to be treated fairly in all aspects of Dutch life and it seems to have made its way down to the dating scene; "Going Dutch" was started here.

It seems it is not always as cut and dry as tradition would have you believe.
