Who We Are

Red Hat Society is our own women’s movement, of sorts – placing a strong emphasis on the positive aspects of life. We stress the importance of friendship and sisterhood, and the value of recess (play) into our busy lives. Always trailblazers, we help reshape the way modern women are viewed and valued in today’s culture.

Today, hatters are commonly seen frolicking and embracing life to the fullest wearing the now famous symbol – a red or pink hat and purple and lavender regalia.

Why Should You Join?

Online and Offline Community

Official members and queens are automatically added to our global online chapter and have access to our members-only website as well as private social media groups. This includes access to potential engagement and connections; online and off. The level of participation is entirely up to each member.

Fun Stuff

Members’ corner is a section on the RHS website that is filled to the brim with fun and interesting resources from tips, crafts, tips, articles, recipes, downloadable content, and so much more. We also offer a free digital exclusive magazine especially for our members that is published two times a year.

Event Calendar

How to Get Started

You start with our Member Handbook which may be found in the Members’ Corner. In it, members learn about our traditions and receive advice on getting the most out of your membership. Whether you have chosen to be a Queen or member, it’s easy and fun.  Queens will learn how to start a chapter, gather her court, and be the best Queen ever. Both Queens and members reach out through our website search feature and forums to find other members in their area and post on our private forums to introduce themselves.

Welcome! First, we recommend that you grab a cuppa tea or a nice glass of wine, find a comfortable chair, and read our Member Handbook.  It’s a quick read and has nearly everything you need to know to get started.

Our website provides you with multiple ways to connect with queens and members in your area and around the world. You’ll find a forum where you can talk to other members, learn creative and inspiring ideas about ways to play in our Members’ Corner, and receive emailed opportunities only available to members of the Society. You are also invited to join our Facebook groups; start with The Official Red Hat Society Group.

As a member, you will be automatically added to the official online Red Hat Society chapter.  As a Queen, you will be also be added to the official Red Hat Society® Queens-only group where you’ll find your queenly resources, communications from Hatquarters, and other Queens. The fun is just getting started! The more you explore, the more you’ll discover all that your RHS membership has to offer.


We recommend that you start by reading the Members’ Handbook. It’s a handy Queen’s resource.  You’ll fill out your profile, add your picture in regalia, and introduce yourself in all the groups and forums. There is the online calendar to peruse, the Members’ Corner for great ideas, the Red Hatter Matters online magazine and Hatquarters’ communications to read.  When you are ready to start a chapter of your own, request one to be created from your profile. Click on your profile on the top right, then go to Groups > Create Group. Or you can click here. Congratulations on being the next RHS Queen!
