Lutheran High School Presents: Radium Girls
In 1926, radium was a miracle cure that could “add years to your life.” Luminous, radium painted watches were all the rage and an important safety feature for the military – that is until the women who painted these watches began to fall fatally ill.
Based on the remarkable true story of Grace Fryer and other “Radium Girls” who cared to take on the U.S. Radium Corporation and its president, Arthur Roeder. Arthur, an idealistic business man, vehemently argued the same element that shrinks tumors could not possibly have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses spreading among his employees.
The court battled dragged on for years, years the girls didn’t have. Many girls died before seeing justice, but this historic battle ultimately led to changing the safety standards for all workers everywhere.
