About “Radium Girls”
Between 1917 and 1926, female factory workers were employed to paint watch dials with a new self-luminous paint containing radium. Many of these women suffered severe health conditions as a result of radiation poisoning. Radium Girls follows the true story of how Grace Fryer led her fellow workers to challenge the safety practices of the labor industry, the morality of scientific innovation and the greed of corporate America.
