Women throughout history have always naturally been drawn to the idea of community. They are able to lean on one another and create strong friendships. Friendships that become more special and more important than any other relationship because they are forged through mutual understanding and empathy. Motherhood alone has a huge impact on relationships that women have with one another. They bond over this shared experience that only women can truly understand.
As naturally social beings, having connections with other people and creating a sense of belonging is among one of our strongest driving forces. Throughout history the ways in which women came together has been different, but the purpose has always been the same, to belong and create healthy relationships. When you feel connection with others, it naturally boosts your mood and even your outlook on life. Who wouldn't want that? I think that women since the beginning of time figured this out.
