Summary
Dorothy Day was an author and activist who fought tirelessly for women's equality and socialist causes during the early part of the 20th century as well as other social causes during the latter half of the 1900s. She also was one of the leaders of the Catholic Workers' Movement, which was the first organization to involve the Roman Catholic Church in social activism. Without Day's contributions to American history, modern America might be a very different country than most people know it to be, as she was instrumental in achieving freedom and equality for many groups of Americans. Impressively, Day lived to be almost 100 years old and fought for social equality throughout her life. By studying her life, one can see the changing landscape of American society and the different issues that needed to be addressed to make America truly the free country it had been created to be. Dorothy Day fought for women's equality as a young woman and protested against the Vietnam War as an older one, making her a unique and interesting figure in American history. She lived through the women's suffrage movement, the Great Depression, both World Wars, the African-American civil rights movement and the Vietnam War - and was involved in social action related to all of these events
