Book Description1917. As a war raged across the world, young American women flocked to work, paintingwatches, clocks and military dials with a special luminous substance made from radium. It was afun job, lucrative and glamorous-the girls themselves shone brightly in the dark, covered head totoe in the dust from the paint. They were the radium girls. As the years passed, the women beganto suffer from mysterious and crippling illnesses. The very thing that had made them feel alivetheirwork-was in fact slowly killing them: they had been poisoned by the radium paint. Yet theiremployers denied all responsibility. And so, in the face of unimaginable suffering-in the face ofdeath-these courageous women refused to accept their fate quietly, and instead becamedetermined to fight for justice. Drawing on previously unpublished sources-including diaries,letters, and court transcripts, as well as original interviews with the women's relatives-TheRadium Girls is an intimate narrative account of an unforgettable true story. It is the powerful taleof a group of ordinary women from the Roaring Twenties, who themselves learned how to roar.
