International Women's Friendship Month

Ask any woman--there's something special about her friendships with other women. Our female friends know us better than anyone else. They are there to listen, to console, and to encourage. They are our loudest cheerleaders and our most compassionate confidantes. Our women friends come in a wide variety--sister, mother, neighbor, childhood playmate, college roommate. We make connections at the playground, the workplace, the gym, and over the proverbial back fence.

From a leisurely Saturday afternoon over coffee to precious moments stolen for a late night phone call, our relationships with other women can sustain us and give life depth. We need to remember the important roles our women friends play in our lives.

In 1999, Kappa Delta Sorority created National Women's Friendship Day to do just that. And in 2009, alongside Kappa Delta’s creation of the Confidence Coalition, the celebration was expanded to the entire month of September. Now known as International Women's Friendship Month, the celebration offers all women the opportunity to remember their cherished friends.

Mark your calendars and join us in celebrating women's friendship in September! For more information on the month, please visit the Confidence Coalition website.

Collegiate & alumnae chapters may order supplies for International Women's Friendship Month through the Kappa Delta Boutique.
