Cap & Bells "Radium Girls"

In an Orange, New Jersey clock factory in 1926, newly discovered radium was hailed as a miraculous panacea, invaluable to industry and essential to progress in the modern world. Yet the element’s destructive effects were not yet known, resulting the deaths of women who painted the surfaces of watches with radium powder paint. D. W. Gregory’s Radium Girls follows the quest of many of these workers to expose to the media their own exploitation in an ill-fated campaign for justice.
