Educated at Iowa State Agricultural College, paying her own way by teaching, Catt received her BA in 1880. The following year she took a position as high school principal and by 1883 had become superintendent of schools in Mason City, Iowa. She married Les Chapman, a newspaper editor, in 1885, but Chapman died the following year. Catt then moved to San Francisco and worked for a local newspaper before returning to Iowa in 1887. In 1890, she married George Catt. She became involved in the Iowa Woman Suffrage Association and by 1900 was elected president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA), following in the footsteps of Susan B. Anthony. In 1904, she left NAWSA due to her husband's health issues. He died in 1905 and she returned to her activism. In 1915, she was brought back as president of NAWSA and would later be instrumental in convincing the government to pass the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, guaranteeing the right to vote for women. She retired from NAWSA and founded the League of Woman Voters, She also became an activist in anti-war causes during the 1930's and, when Hitler came to power, she organised the Protest Committee of Non-Jewish Women Against the Persecution of Jews in Germany. In 1940, she helped to organise the Woman's Centennial Conference in New York. Catt contributed numerous articles to leading journals and produced a number of pamphlets during her interesting career.
