About Us

Thank you for wanting to learn more about The Red Hat Society!

The Red Hat Society began as a result of a few women deciding to greet middle age with verve, humor and élan. The RHS passion is to promote just that.

Initially started as a social organization for women age 50 and over, The Red Hat Society now attracts women in all age demographics through both the "Red Hat" (those over 50) and the "Pink Hat" designations (those under 50). The Red Hat Society has become the international society dedicated to reshaping the way women are viewed in today's culture.

We believe having fun is not only the comedy relief of life, it has been proven to have a multitude of health benefits as well!

Research has shown that having fun on a regular basis promotes a happy life! And, since we are all growing older day by day, we might as well join red-gloved hands and go for the gusto together.

Women join the RHS for a multitude of reasons, but the one common denominator is to connect with kindred spirits who want to experience fun and friendship on a more fulfilling level. This celebration of women of all ages results in activities designed to pamper, indulge and entertain; all while creating authentic relationships that support and encourage women to get the most out of life.

The team at Hatquarters is passionate about connecting, empowering and transforming the lives of women through the power of Fun and Friendship.

Our official website,, is the center point of communication between Chapters, Supporting Members and the Red Hat Society Hatquarters located in Fullerton, California, USA.
