Note: There were two pre-crisis Batwomen, one of Earth-1 and Earth-2.
Batwoman of Earth-2 retired her crime-fighting career and became a prominent citizen of Gotham City.
Batwoman of Earth-1 met a more tragic fate. She briefly retired and shortly after donning the costume again was murdered by Bronze Tiger as a ploy in the struggle between Rās al Ghūl and the League of Assassins.
Both Batwomen were omitted from history during the Crisis on Infinite Earths.

A circus stunt-cyclist and trapeze artist Kathy Kane long admired the Batman. Receiving a considerable inheritance she decided to become a costumed crime fighter patterned after her idol. She constructed a mansion atop of an abandoned mine tunnel, filling it with a state-of-the-art crime-lab, constructed a Batcycle, designed a costume and embarked on a career as Batwoman.
