Eileen Egan (1912–2000) was a journalist, Roman Catholic activist, and co-founder of the Catholic peace group, American PAX Association and its successor Pax Christi-USA, the American branch of International Pax Christi. Starting 1943 she remained an active member of Catholic Relief Services, and a longtime friend of Mother Teresa, she wrote her biography Such A Vision: Mother Teresa, the Spirit, and the Work, and marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at Selma. She first coined the term "seamless garment" to describe the unity of Catholic teaching on life issues.
