Dorothy Day
FameRank: 6

"Dorothy Day", Oblate/Obl.O.S.B. was an United States/American journalist, social activist, and devout Catholic Church/Catholic convert. She advocated the Catholic economic theory of distributism. In the 1930s, Day worked closely with fellow activist Peter Maurin to establish the Catholic Worker Movement, a pacifist movement that continues to combine direct aid for the poor and homeless with nonviolent direct action on their behalf. She served as editor of the Catholic Worker newspaper from 1933 until her death in 1980.

The Catholic Church has opened the cause for Day's canonization and therefore refers to her with the title Servant of God.
