The founder of the Society is artist Sue Ellen Cooper, who lives in Fullerton, Orange County, California. In 1997, Cooper gave a friend a 55th birthday gift consisting of a red bowler purchased at an antique store along with a copy of Jenny Joseph's poem "Warning". The opening lines of the poem read:
|"When I am an old woman I shall wear purple|
With a red hat that doesn't go and doesn't suit me."
Originally the society was open for only women over 50, but now is open to all women. Sounds like a fun time with girlfriends :)
