A GratuitousEnglish Japanese term -- often abbreviated to "[=OL=]" -- for a low-level female employee in a corporate setting. Although she may have higher aspirations, the misogynistic atmosphere of the usual Japanese corporation frequently conspires to keep her fetching coffee, fending off sexual harassment, and forever clinging to the bottom rung of the office ladder. The Western equivalent would be the "glass ceiling".

* 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]].
