The Red Hat Society is one the world’s largest networks for women. It began in 1998 with less than 18 members, and now features more than 30,000 local chapters. These chapters are located in every State of America, and in over 25 foreign countries.

The RHS could not have come to being with out the leadership of Sue Ellen Cooper. Sue Ellen founded the Red Hat Society with the hope it would bring women together in friendship and fun. Now thousands of women across the world share this philosophy.

Sue Ellen has accomplished many great things in her life. Before the Red Hat Society was founded Sue Ellen worked as a commercial greeting card illustrator. She also spent several years working in a mural-painting business.

The Fun Times of Red and Pink Hatters

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

The Red Hat Society is world-renown. A lot of people have heard of the popular Red Hat Society, but not everyone knows what members do. We aim to answer those questions in this article.

The RHS’s main purpose is to provide a helpful network for each other. It is their hope that this social interaction will encourage women to maintain friendships and have fulfillment in their lives. Members strive to journey through life with fun and freedom.

The Red Hat Society often gets mistaken for a sorority. The RHS is actually not a sorority, because it does not include initiations. The society is not considered a voluntary service club either, but rather an organization for women.

Members refer to each other as “Red Hatters”. Members over the age of 50 wear red hats and purple attired to all functions. The leader of these local chapters, or groups, is known as the “Queen”.

Women who are under the age of 50 are also invited to join the organization. A “Pink Hatter” is a woman who hasn’t reached the age of fifty yet, and she must wear a pink hat and lavender outfits. After she turns 50, she has a “Reduation” and graduates to the red hat with the rest of the RHS members.

Red Hat members get together regularly. Both Red and Pink Hatters enjoy wearing very eloquent and fun hats and fashion accessories to every event. One of the more popular accessories are the feather boa and pearls.

The Beginning Of The Red Hat Society

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

The history of the of the Red Hat Society began in the sunny city of Tucson, Arizona. A woman by the name of Sue Ellen meandered along a thrift shop looking for things she might like to buy. She decided on buying a bright red fedora hat that struck her fancy.

That bright red fedora has now become the symbol of the Red Hat Society. A few years after buying the hat she happened upon a poem “Warning”, written by the author Jenny Joseph. In the poem, a woman explains how she would like to act when she is older.

“When I am an old woman I shall wear purple, with a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me. And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves, and satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.” At the end of the poem she explains that she knows she presently needs to continue to be a good example to those around her. However, she also believes she ought to practice living the way she would like to now a little, so people won’t be too shocked when she suddenly is an older woman and she wears purple.
