Women need other women. The closeness we share with our female friends is a unique and special bond. This connection takes many forms: mothers and daughters, grandmothers and granddaughters, sisters, girlfriends and colleagues. Female friendship gives us stability and a sense of belonging. That's why it's important for us to create ways to share time together -- whether that's a weekly coffee date or membership in a book club.
