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