The Radium Girls: Discussion Thread #6

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 43.

For next week, try to read up to the end of Chapter 53. The following week, we’ll read to the end. Then the week after, we’ll have a wrap-up thread.

This week, the struggle moves west, to Ottawa, Illinois where the Radium industry has gone and pulled the exact same stunt. How did you feel about this section?

Feel free to comment with book recommendations or thoughts on what to read next, the next vote is coming this week.
