The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women
by Kate Moore
The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women by Kate Moore
The Radium Girls is the incredible true story of the women who fought America’s “undark danger.” The Curies’ newly discovered element of radium makes gleaming headlines across the nation as the fresh face of beauty, and the wonder drug of the medical community. From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War.
Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies.
