Only by becoming friends with other women, by understanding what we share – and don’t share – can we truly begin to know what it is to be a woman today. Women friends can help us see through the myths and misconceptions that still characterize our thinking about women today. By nurturing those aspects of our nature that are distinctly female, they can also help us to value the women in ourselves.
Because it is women, not men, who nurture other women.
