Dorothy Day was the fiery mother of the Catholic Workers Movement. She was a pacifist, anarchist and civil rights leader. She especially cared for the poor, and questioned how so many people could be living in poverty. I thought she was a fascinating and inspiring part of Utah's influences, and I thought this video gave the name a face. She was beautiful, headstrong and an all around good human. She fought many of the social norms women faced back in her era, by being out on the street protesting, by being completely self sufficient from her father, and by questioning authority.
