a word usually referring to a woman or young girl ... universally used just as a respectful way to call for a girl/woman without knowing or saying their name ....

this term can also be used by old folks when they like to get a smart mouth but its the same meaning a young girl/woman even if you are 80 yrs old if someone is older than you and calls you young lady it isn’t to take offense .
Person 1 : Excuse me young lady, you dropped your pen .

Person 1 : You can give your paperwork to the young lady at window 4, thank you have a nice day .

A word that some people expect you to act like when everybody’s not the fucking same. I feel like people who use this word are feminist because they feel as though girls or women are suppose to be certain ways and do certain things to be accepted.
Teacher: your not acting like a young lady
Student: how the fuck does a “young lady”
