See “Radium Girls” and support CLUW
If you missed last night’s screening of the new film Radium Girls -- or want to see it again or share it with friends/colleagues -- you can catch it here, where $2 of the ticket will go to support the Coalition of Labor Union Women’s work creating connections between the feminist movement and the labor movement in the United States. Based on true events of the 1920’s, Radium Girls stars Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Joey King and Abby Quinn as teen sisters dreaming of Hollywood and Egyptian pyramids while they paint glow-in-the-dark watch dials at the American Radium factory in New Jersey. But when Jo loses a tooth, Bessie’s world is turned upside down as a mystery slowly unravels and leads to a lawsuit against American Radium. The notorious case ultimately led to a lasting impact in the area of workplace health and safety as well as the study of radioactivity. "The film was amazing," said one attendee last night. "So beautifully made and with such an important and meaningful subject."
