Phossy jaw and the French match workers: Occupational health and women in the Third Republic.

New York: Garland Publishing, 1989.

"The 1898 suppression of white phosphorous in the French match industry was a victory of organized labour. At a time when most French workers did not have the power to effect changes in the health and safety conditions of their work, the match workers succeeded. At a time when most French women were not unionised and did not pursue effective action on occupational health problems, French women in the match industry succeeded" (publisher).
