About the Catt Center

The Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics was founded in 1992 at Iowa State University to interest, educate, and engage citizens in the political process. The center honors Carrie Chapman Catt, a distinguished alumna of Iowa State, leader of the U.S. women’s suffrage movement, crusader for international peace, and advocate for the expansion of women’s rights throughout the world. The center celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2022.
