Q&A / Why Do Amish Women Wear Bonnets?

Women keep their heads covered with a variety of bonnets because of their interpretation of 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 and women keeping their heads covered for prayer. In many communities, the kind of bonnet worn is indicative of a woman’s marital status. Depending on district rules, black bonnets may indicate singleness and a white bonnet signifies that an Amish woman is married. Also depending on district rules, the ribbon or string of the bonnet may be tied or untied.
