1897-1980 "The biggest mistake sometimes is to play things very safe in this life and end up being moral failures."
Dorothy Day combined her political passion for justice and equality with her religious commitment for serving the destitute. She took a vow of poverty and lived a life of service to the poor in the hospitality houses and the newspaper The Catholic Worker she developed with Peter Maurin-- the Catholic Worker Movement. She worked tirelessly and was arrested often in the struggles for women's rights, workers' rights, and against war. Bio: Jim Forest, Love is the Measure.
