Personal Fact of Dorothy Day

The founder of The Catholic Worker, Dorothy Day was an activist who worked for social causes like women’s suffrage and pacifism. She started off as a journalist, writing for several progressive publications and then participated in several political protests where she advocated a number of societal causes. A devoted Catholic, she spawned the Catholic Worker Movement and also helped establish homes for those in need.

She dedicated most of her life to humanitarian causes, driven by her beliefs and adopted faith. Recognized as an influential peace and justice activist in a number of countries including Cuba, Italy and the U.S.S.R, she often associated herself with the radical fusion of activism and faith and worked towards the upliftment of women. Although she was denied the Nobel Prize, she continued the pacifist movement with great zeal and was thus formally proclaimed as a Servant of God.

She has documented her tough upbringing and isolation for many years, in one of her best-seller books, The Long Loneliness. As a youngster, she developed a keen interest in literature, worked as a journalist with a local newspaper and became one of the lead catalysts of a monumental movement.
