* Played with in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''. Elma mainly gets everyone tea at work, but that's only because [[EpicFail she got a job as a programmer without even knowing what a computer was]]. She gets elevated to {{Salary|man}}woman once she learns how to code.

* {{Deconstructed}} in ''Manga/CatsEye'', where Mitsuko Asatani, an ambitious police officer with the investigative and [[ActionGirl combat skills]] to back it up, finds herself thrust in the role because she's a woman in TheEighties' Japan, [[OnlySaneWoman even if she has more common sense than all her squadmates put together]]. Her frustration with this and [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon its influence with her wedding chances]] plays a large part in her short temper, not helped by [[LethalChef her cooking having laxative and potentially lethal effects]].
* Parodied once in ''Manga/CityHunter'' (from the same author as ''Cat's Eye'' above): during one arc [[ActionGirl Kaori]] was to bodyguard a woman, actually her long lost older sister, who, being the director of a newspaper and wishing her sister to abandon her rather dangerous life, asked her to take the role, justifying it as a cover. [[HilarityEnsues Kaori's attempt at using a photocopier (who hadn't the plug in place) ended with her smashing it with a giant hammer, and it was only the beginning]].

Traditionally, the "[[http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/japans-office-ladies-wont-file-and-forget-1318393.html office flower]]" was selected for being attractive and gracious to clients and expected to work for only a few years (just long enough to meet a nice young executive to marry), so it was not considered a "real" career. Some companies have [=OLs=] on separate career tracks to their "real employees" (who would generally be expected to stay with the company for their entire working life, and progress up the corporate ladder accordingly) -- and give female hires a choice of which track they want to be on.
