Warm and cozy for the cooler months, our wonderful knit hats are a delightful choice for liberated ladies. Handmade from soft yarn, the shape of this flattering ladies topper harks back to the days of the push for the Nineteenth Amendment.

In 1915, American women were pushing for equal rights, particularly the right to vote in national elections. They lectured, wrote, marched, lobbied, and practiced civil disobedience to achieve what many Americans considered a radical change of the Constitution. Finally, Congress passed on June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment, which guarantees all American women the right to vote. The Nineteenth Amendment Joint Resolution of Congress and many other records related to women’s equal rights are preserved and protected in the National Archives.
