Description of The Radium Girls by Kate Moore ePub
“The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women” is a heartbreaking history of unfortunate young women employed in factories painting clock dials with Radium paint in the 1920s. Kate Moore is the author of this impressive book. This book is the true story of young women who worked in a watch factory for years, where they were constantly exposed to radium. This book is an amazing record of women involved in the craze of “the health benefits” and industrial uses of radium that occurred in the early 1920s, lasting well after WWII. They were employed in painting dials for watches and equipment with radium paint, without any knowledge of the dangers to which they were being exposed.
As a result of management’s subterfuge, they were to spend years suffering from the effect of radium poisoning before finally succumbing. This is the story of their fight for justice in the courts, the fight to stop any further needless suffering and ultimately convincing the courts that the companies should be held responsible. Kate Moore has done an amazing job of recreating their stories, with the assistance of family members, letters, diaries, medical reports, and case notes from the son of the attorney who handled their cases. Moore’s extensive research results in an amazing story, appalling as the facts may be. It truly is a great read.
