The Radium Girls: Discussion Thread #3

We’re reading The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women. If you have your hands on a copy, this week we wanted to read up to the end of Chapter 20 and kick off part two. If you haven’t been able to grab a copy, don’t worry, you can catch up later.

For next week, try to read up to the end of Chapter 28.

This week, things began to turn for the women, though their bodies failed them the scientific and medical research around their plights finally begin to shift in their favor. The problem? The industrial and political forces are decidedly against them. With part two, we saw the legal fight begin.

How did you feel about these chapters? How do you feel about the book so far?
