Transformation and Transcendence: the Power of Female Friendship

A Wellesley friend of mine recently emailed this article about female friendship to me and I wanted to share it with you. It reminded me of just how powerful our Wellesley sisterhood is. I've only just graduated a year and half ago, but I've already seen just how amazing our bonds are =)

Transformation and Transcendence: the Power of Female Friendship

excerpt from the article:

The Wrinklies weren’t spinsters or old maids and they were not "failures" in any way. They were free. It was I who failed to see them, until later, for who they really were: educated, hugely intelligent, fascinating, financially independent. Women who led rich lives full of meaningful work, deep and lasting friendship, sex when they wanted it, time with the beloved children of their family and friends, conversations about politics and art and literature, culture, travel to remarkable destinations where they did not journey as unconscious tourists but as guests in people’s homes and hearts. Despite these full lives they owned their own time, they owned their days. I did not. I was too busy trying to find someone who would spend the days with me, as if this would validate my presence in the world.
