To the Editor:Re “A Trailblazer Who’s Been Ready for Years” (Sports, Nov. 19):The hiring of Kim Ng to be the general manager of the Miami Marlins and the first woman to be a general manager in any major men’s sport is moving.
It is moving because not only is she female, she is also Asian-American.
Asian women are often forgotten in the labor market, and we’re less likely to obtain a management role.
We carry the burden of the Asian woman stereotype, which includes being submissive or passive, characteristics that go against the grain of a great leader.
This burden is heavy at times, but with the announcement of Ng’s good news in this vicious news cycle, I feel a sense of renewed hope and optimism.
