“I still have friends from primary school. And my two best girlfriends are from secondary school. I don’t have to explain anything to them. I don’t have to apologize for anything. They know. There’s no judgment in any way.” – Emma Watson

“Abandon the cultural myth that all female friendships must be bitchy, toxic, or competitive. This myth is like heels and purses — pretty but designed to SLOW women down.” – Roxane Gay

“I don’t know what I would have done so many times in my life if I hadn’t had my girlfriends. They have literally gotten me up out of bed, taken my clothes off, put me in the shower, dressed me, said, ‘Hey, you can do this,’ put my high heels on and pushed me out the door!” – Reese Witherspoon

“I love my husband, but it is nothing like a conversation with a woman that understands you. I grow so much from those conversations.” – Beyonce Knowles

“It’s because our friendships – female friendships are just a hop to our sisterhood, and sisterhood can be a very powerful force, to give the world … the things that humans desperately need.” – Tanja Taaljard

Any time women come together with a collective intention, it’s a powerful thing. Whether it’s sitting down making a quilt, in a kitchen preparing a meal, in a club reading the same book, or around the table playing cards, or planning a birthday party, when women come together with a collective intention, magic happens. – Phylicia Rashad

“I’ll always prefer to play with women and hang out with women, and I’ll always be a feminist.” – Courtney Love

“The only people you can really share certain things with in secret are your girlfriends.” – Shirley Knight

“If you can find a group of women, any age, who are supportive and kind and love you, that’s the best. I have a group of girlfriends that I would lay in front of a bus for. They’ve picked me up through really, really bad times and I can definitely say I’ve done the same for them.” –  Katie Lowes

“Women understand. We may share experiences, make jokes, paint pictures, and describe humiliations that mean nothing to men, but women understand. The odd thing about these deep and personal connections of women is that they often ignore barriers of age, economics, worldly experience, race, culture — all the barriers that, in male or mixed society, had seemed so difficult to cross.” – Gloria Steinem

“Oh my God, my girlfriends are everything to me. They celebrate with you, they cry with you, they hold you when you need to be held. They laugh with you. They’re mean with you! They’re always there, and it’s just a priceless thing to have. – Jennifer Lopez

“I don’t know about you, but my girlfriends have been my girlfriends forever, and they’re my sisters and my family.” – Elizabeth Olsen

“Once a month, I get together with my girlfriends and we usually check into a hotel or go to someone else’s house. We can talk for 15 hours, and it just flies by.” – Leslie Mann

“Men come and go – God knows they certainly have in my life – but girlfriends are forever. I have a lot of girlfriends but only a few very, very close ones.” – Alana Stewart

“Some women pray for their daughters to marry good husbands. I pray that my girls will find girlfriends half as loyal and true as the Ya-Yas.”
― Rebecca Wells, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

“Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.”
— Candace Bushnell
