Why should it matter whether a women is married or not? Does it matter if a
man is married or not? We refer to them, regardless of their marital
status, as Mr. so and so.

I don't have an actual reference for you but in my experience it is standard
to refer to women as Ms. so and so. I've only heard women referred to as
Miss and their first name in old movies.
