Description

In the years following World War One, thousands of young women were hired to paint radium on watch and clock dials so they would glow in the dark. As a result, many of the women would suffer the excruciating effects of radiation poisoning, which often lead to their deaths at an early age. 

My guest, Kate Moore, is author of the New York Times bestselling book "Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women". She joins me to talk about this terrible tragedy (which would be covered up by the guilty corporations for decades) and the bravery of the afflicted women, who fought an uphill battle for justice.

if he had an author on his show who said " well i wanted to write a play for men, and do something for male actors" Eric would have piles of hate mail and 1 star reviews coming down on him! I'm so sick of this tired feminist attitude, and I know plenty of women who even cringe as stupid statements like the one she made. women are just as represented in the arts as anybody. there's TONS of strong female leads, playing strong female characters. stop acting like you're some kind of hero fighting women's suffrage. I swear some idiots like her will never ever be satisfied. because they just having a Battle to fight. it has nothing to do with equality to them, and they'll never be happy, nor satisfied. feminist's like her give women a bad name. stop trying too be a hero in a war that doesn't exist anymore in movie/theatre. I know at least 2 female friends who listened to this episode and both found that statement foolish. get off your damn high horse, and open your ignorant eyes to the real world.

read the book in under 3 days, I couldn't put it down despite how much it made me angry due to the fact that these women where lied to their faces about what was happening to them.
