As World War I raged across the globe, hundreds of young women toiled away at the radium-dial factories, where they painted clock faces with a mysterious new substance called radium. Assured by their bosses that the luminous material was safe, the women themselves shone brightly in the dark, covered from head to toe with the glowing dust. A rich, historical narrative written in a sparkling voice, The Radium Girls is the first book that fully explores the strength of these extraordinary women.
