Boundless: Girls Need Girls

Girls Need Girls
by Suzanne Hadley

There seems to be a trend toward the rejection of female friends these days. TV often portrays women who hang out with guys as having more sexual power or being somehow above the emotional fray of womanhood. I've often heard a woman say, "I'd rather just have guy friends. I get along better with guys." But friendships with men — as fun as they can be — will never replace the joys and benefits of female friendships.

And if for some reason they can't make female friends would we be right to suspect that they were either unlucky in not being able to meet the right people, or that they had some personal issue?
