Sue Ellen Cooper biography

Sue Ellen Cooper, born on January 1, 1943, is an American entrepreneur and the founder of the Red Hat Society, a social organization that celebrates women and promotes friendship, fun, and the joy of aging gracefully. Cooper's story takes an interesting turn when, in 1997, she gave a friend a red hat as a birthday gift along with a copy of the poem "Warning" by Jenny Joseph. The poem humorously contemplates the liberation that comes with aging, expressing a desire to wear purple and a red hat when one is older. Inspired by the sentiment in the poem, Cooper and her friends began donning red hats and purple attire for social gatherings, turning the idea into a whimsical and empowering movement.

In 1998, Cooper officially founded the Red Hat Society, creating a platform for women to come together, celebrate life, and build connections. The organization quickly gained popularity, attracting women of all ages who embraced the philosophy of embracing life with a sense of playfulness and camaraderie. The Red Hat Society encourages its members to enjoy life, pursue new interests, and support each other in various endeavors. Members, known as "Red Hatters," participate in events, outings, and activities, all while proudly wearing red hats and purple clothing. The society has grown into an international phenomenon, with chapters around the world promoting the idea that age should not limit one's capacity for joy and friendship.

Sue Ellen Cooper's creation of the Red Hat Society has had a profound impact on the lives of countless women, fostering a sense of community and sisterhood. Her vision has resonated with individuals seeking to challenge societal expectations surrounding aging and to embrace a more vibrant and fulfilling later stage of life. Beyond her role as the founder of the Red Hat Society, Sue Ellen Cooper has become an advocate for positive aging, encouraging women to live life to the fullest and find joy in every stage. Her innovative approach to creating a supportive and lively community has left a lasting legacy in the realm of women's empowerment and social connections.
