Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040 - Office lady - Netflix
An office lady, often abbreviated OL, is a female office worker in Japan who performs generally pink collar tasks such as serving tea and secretarial or clerical work. Office ladies are usually full-time permanent staff, although the jobs they perform usually have little opportunity for promotion, and there is usually the tacit expectation that they leave their jobs once they get married. Due to some Japanese pop culture influence in China mainland, Taiwan and Hong Kong, the term is also in common usage there. However, the meaning of the word is slightly different.
