I noticed this story in my RSS feeds this morning: http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/bishops-to-consider-sainthood-cause-of-dorothy-day/ 
I didn't know anything about her until reading this article. She came to Catholicism later in life, had an atheist common law husband, and a child out of wedlock. I imagine that was scandalous in the 1920s. She was the founder of the Catholic Worker Movement and was an advocate for distributism.
Do you know much about Dorothy Day?
