The Fedora as a Symbol of Immigration Fairness

A new media campaign uses ” the fedora as a metaphor for the many hats that women wear” and a “symbol of the need for immigration reform that treats women fairly.”  The well known fashion photographer Albert Watson is spearheading “fedoras4fairness” as the video below explains.

Hats, of course, have featured prominently in nation-building.  William Penn’s hat and the Elizabethan Cap Act are but two examples.
