1860. This is a true story of the historical battle for women's mental health rights. Elizabeth Packard's husband of twenty-one years feels increasingly threatened by Elizabeth's intellect, independence, and unwillingness to stifle her own thoughts. He makes plans to put his wife back in her place by committing her to an insane asylum. There are many rational women on her ward who have been committed in order to keep them in line.

EadieB Elizabeth's refusal to be silenced and her ceaseless quest for justice challenged the medical science of the day, and led to a giant leap forward in women's human rights. I enjoyed this book but thought it could be shorter as it repeated facts too many times. If you enjoy stories about forgotten women of history, then you will enjoy this book. 11mo

A couple of months ago, some friends of mine and I got together via Zoom to read the play adaptation of this story. I‘m finally getting around to reading this, and...wow. Just wow. 😭 #theradiumgirls #thedarkstoryofamericasshiningwomen #katemoore #history

I am obsessed with finding out more about these kind of hidden stories- stories you don‘t learn about in history class, because the characters are not white straight cisgender men, but (in this case) brave, resilient and strong women who fought for their rights.
Very interesting reads.

Another highly entertaining and exceedingly complex spy story from Chris Pavone, which sees Kate Moore, one of the main protagonists from his first novel, Expats, returning to espionage work.
