I think every woman needs a group of female friends.

I'm absolutely not discounting the value of friendships with guys or people who identify as non-binary, I just think that … I don't know, I just think that now more than ever, women need to be there for each other.

That's one of the reasons I love movies that celebrate female friendships, in addition to the fact that I just love seeing women in leading roles.

The following films are all about female friendships and what they offer.

Make sure you add your favorite movies, too!

1. Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion

Romy and Michele's antics are funny, as is their mission to dominate their high school reunion by any means necessary, but their friendship is the real plot point.

They've been together since high school.

When we meet them, we can see that they've easily been friends for over a decade.2

That's longer than most relationships last these days, honestly.2

The best lesson they learn is that nothing is good enough or worthy enough to come between them.

Their bond is stronger than popularity, wealth, and even romantic love.

2. Bridesmaids

It's all too easy to pass off Bridesmaids as a somewhat raunchy comedy, but it's so much more than diarrhea jokes.

In the first place, the cast is comprised of strong women (also, I want Maya Rudolph to be my BFF).

In the second place, the focus is on friendships, old and new, and how they transition over time – but, as you see, that doesn't mean you have to lose what you have.

3. Steel Magnolias

This is probably my favorite movie about female friendships ever.

I'm such a sucker for Steel Magnolias.

This movie actually reveals the essential need for friendship, for a group who understands you, empathizes with you, and supports you as you experience triumphs, tragedies, and celebrations.

Also, I have a distinct feeling that I'm going to grow up to be Ouiser.
