On December 2, 1980, four U.S. churchwomen working with the poor in El Salvador – Maryknoll Sisters Maura Clarke and Ita Ford, Ursuline Sister Dorothy Kazel, and lay missioner Jean Donovan – were kidnapped, raped, and murdered by the U.S.-backed military of El Salvador. In the end, they met the same fate as thousands of unnamed poor Salvadorans who were killed or disappeared.
