My school is Aikikai affiliated, so all yudansha are required to wear the hakama. For the women the hakama is optional up until their dan test. Some wear it, but most not (after all at $200 U.S.D. a piece it´s expensive, specially for a beginner). Since we have very few women, it´s easy to keep track of them, so there are no confusions.
