This vintage style cloche hat is an iconic shape from the early 20th century. Popular during the push for women’s right to vote and the Nineteenth Amendment, the bell shaped hat is a flattering shape on most. Our navy version is made of Toyo straw and is lightweight and packable for travel. It is a lovely piece to add to an outfit without going too over the top.
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.
