Marion Higa
Tuesday, April 7, 7:30 pm

Retired Hawaii State Auditor Marion Higa learned from her parents not to let her gender stand in the way of her goals. On this episode, she matter-of-factly shares her story of seeking the State Auditor position, back when few women in the U.S. had such top jobs. For two decades, Higa and her staff probed State operations and projects, often finding inefficiencies and irregularities and calling for change. Some of her conclusions rankled and embarrassed governors, and she was known for her unflinching responses to those in power.


This program is available in high-definition and will be rebroadcast on Wed., April 8 at 11:00 pm and Sun., April 12 at 4:00 pm.
