About Dorothy Day: Nov. 8, 1897---Nov. 29, 1980
Dorothy Day was an activist who worked for such social causes as pacifism and women's suffrage through the prism of the Catholic Church.
Intrigued by the Catholic faith for years, Dorothy Day converted in 1927. In 1933, she co-founded The Catholic Worker, a newspaper promoting Catholic teachings that became very successful and spawned the Catholic Worker Movement, which tackled issues of social justice. Day also helped establish special homes to help those in need.
