Abstract

In the 21st century, Asian American women, as a group, are considered to face certain barriers-the bamboo ceiling in US high-tech workplaces specifically. The existence of such barriers and the choice of action toward the barriers become what people concern most about. Based on these issues, this paper first analyzes data to reveal the overview of the current situation of Asian American women in American High-Tech workplaces and are shown from comparisons between different social groups. Moreover, the paper also discusses a specific case raised by an individual Asian American Women against her employer company. Based on further analysis of the case, which is combined with the concept of intersectionality, the paper suggests more considerations of intersectionality and encourages more actions of Asian American women fighting for equality.
