The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women by Kate Moore
Moore tells the horrifying true story of the young women who worked in radium dial factories in the 1920s and ’30s. Using radium dusted paint to create glow-in-the-dark numbers on watch faces, the “shining girls” became luminous themselves, their clothing and hair dusted with a toxic poison. Moore’s extensive research into the individual life stories of these doomed women brings their struggle to achieve justice to life.
