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.
