Biographical Sketch

 

Susan Catania, Republican state representative from the Twenty-second District (Chicago) from 1972 to 1982, was born on December 10, 1941 in Chicago, Illinois, the daughter of John J. and Helen Giffrow Kmetty.  She was educated in the city, received a Bachelor of Arts degree in chemistry from St. Xavier College, Chicago and did graduate work at Northwestern University.  From 1963 to 1970, Catania was employed as an information director at W. C. McCrone Associates, a Chicago chemical company.  From 1970 until her election to the General Assembly,Catania worked as a free-lance technical editor.

           

As a legislator, Catania gained a reputation as a liberal Republican, taking strong stances on women’s issues and being active in Illinois’ independent voters groups and several non-partisan associations.  She was involved in many women’s organizations on the local, state, and national levels.  Catania served as a delegate to Republican national conventions 1976, 1980 and 1984.

Her legislative interest centered around women, children and the family. Many of her bills concerned sex discrimination in employment, credit, and education.  She was an advocate for flexible work schedules, child-support laws, school bus safety, responsible day care centers and health care for high-risk infants.  Her 1981 Domestic Violence Act favoring victims’ rights through stricter enforcement of the law was subsequently used as a model by other states.  Catania was a strong supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment and pressed for its ratification, being the chief sponsor of the amendment when it finally lost in the General Assembly in 1982.

           

Cataniawas also a pioneer advocate for gay rights legislation in Illinoisand a strong supporter of civil rights issues.  Bills she sponsored also included those concerned with Cook County and Provident Hospitals, prisons, divorce, public aid and senior citizens.  In 1973 Catania was appointed to the Illinois Commission on the Status of Women, and became the chairman of the commission the following year, holding that position until the end of her tenure in the General Assembly.  The commission had grown in importance from a position that was basically symbolic, becoming influential in state legislation. In 1982 Catania ran for the Republican Party nomination for Lieutenant Governor, but lost in the primary to George Ryan.  After losing the nomination she began her own firm, Susan Catania Consulting.  She received numerous awards for best legislator and in 1983 served a fellowship at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.  Catania belonged to the Society for Technical Communication, the American Chemical Society, the National Organization of Women and the National Order of Women Legislators.

           

Cataniamarried Anthony Edward Catania in 1963, with which she had seven daughters: Susan, Rachel, Sara Ellen, Melissa, Amy, Annemarie and Margaret.
