Margaret Haddix Research Paper
As the hats were as big as chairs., the women wore them constantly.
“But the woman pulled out Yetta's own hat pin, from She'd dressed with extra care that morning, even borrowing Rahel's fancy hat. “
You'll be the public face of the strike,” Rahel had said, placing the hat at precisely the right angle, to ride the swell of Yetta's thick hair. ( Haddix 80) Yetta wears a hat for the parade so people trust her.
Thus fashion meant all, the fashion had purposes to stand out and to inform. As the clothing statements were shown through three ways, first through design, second through corsets, thirdly through ruffles and lastly through hats, one will still judge one another.
As all the girls wore corsets, hats and fluffy dresses, they had to have perfection in everything they did and always be perfect. “In America, money is God”(Haddix 208). This all meant a lot because without the clothing statements, many of events wouldn't of happened.
